Street Art Homage

Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney

August 2017

Street Art Homage

Street art has various aims: marking territory, brightening up the street maybe, or perhaps for commercial purposes. But this time it has a more unconventional purpose: to eulogize Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in a colorful, unique way. An homage to her creativity and the fact she created one of the most emblematic and beloved sculpture in Huelva the “Fe Descubridora” monument also called the Columbus Memorial.

Mash-up

This painting is located on the Escultora Miss Whitney Avenue, just in front of the school of Arts León Ortega, Huelva. You won’t be able to see it yet on Google because it has just been realized! Manomatic decided here to make a mash-up between this sumptuous artist and the Al-Andalus cross, a part of the iconography of Spain when it was a medieval Moorish territory and a great period for Liberty and Arts.
