KRAVN MANOJN

Here is a wall we did with my partner BIMS in 2019. We tryed to talk about communication and made a analogy with language and graffiti. As people don’t understand the sign language, then can feel something when they see it. We called it “Kravn Majojn”, you can translate it as “for hands” in Esperanto, an universal language. The four hands is ours, but it’s also the four hands we used in sign language in this painting to describe the four letters of our graffiti name’s. If people can’t read our graffiti name, they can feel a sensation about how it is written, and that’s the point of this writing paint.
