Street artist Escif hails from Valencia, Spain but has been gaining world exposure with his tongue-in-cheek murals that display political, economical and social issues. The artist himself is making a conscious effort to get people to look at his work  and not just focus on the aesthetic of the work but rather make people aware of what is happening. Escif creates works of art that challenge the way that people perceive certain issues that are often ignore. I must say I was impressed with his work because it has purpose. I truly appreciate artists that have meaning behind their work and that do it in a comical manner while at the same time leave you thinking (food for though). Please find below some of the murals he has been creating around the world. Also make sure that you follow this amazing artist via his blog Street Against,
