An eco-puddle sculpture by Spanish street artist Isaac Cordal.
Isaac Cordal’s miniature street sculptures can be found all over Madrid and are capturing the attention of street art enthusiasts worldwide. Originally from Galacia, in the north of Spain, he focuses on tiny concrete sculptures of people in real life situations and has them evoke a multitude of emotions. Most of them are devoid of colour, and they blend seamlessly into their urban environment and work with it in order to create new meaning and can be found in the most unlikely and unusual places such as on top of buildings or bus shelters, and in gutters along the road.
Most recently, Cordal has been working on an outdoor installation entitled “Waiting for Climate Change”, which is exhibited on the beach of De Panne, as well as in a historic villa occupied by Chalutier. It focuses on how different people deal with the issue of climate change in their individual ways.. . .
As it turns out, Cordal’s sculpture is actually called “electoral campaign” and it’s part of a larger street art installation called “Follow the leaders.” The tiny cement figures, arranged in bleak scenes of urban disintegration, represent the faceless businessmen who run our capitalist global order.
“These pieces reflect our own decline,” says Cordal. “We live immersed in the collapse of a system that needs change.”
