  • This fresco is entitled "the Madre secular 2" (the secular mother). It was carried out by INTI (INTI Castro) in June 2016. Perched on a carrycot, he took twelve days to realize it. The Madre secular is a secular representation of the Madonna. She is dressed in a yellow and orange tunic. His necklace and bracelets are made of small skulls and his belt is composed of machine gun bullets. In her right hand, she holds an Apple. This is the Newton's Apple (the letter G and the downward arrow on the Apple refer to gravity). I think this Newton's Apple as well as the constellation of stars drawn on its gloves show that scientific knowledge has swept through the laws imposed by religion. "I am in the real, prefering the evidence to the faith: that is why I love science, there is a logic" said Inti a few months ago. This fresco seems to denounce obscurantism and its consequences. However, this gigantic, detail-rich mural painting is difficult to interpret. It remains relatively enigmatic. This work is part of the extensive street-art program initiated, since 2010, by the Town Hall of the XIIIth arrondissement and the Itinerrance Gallery. INTI is a Chilean painter. He has produced over a hundred gigantic frescoes all over the world. These works evoke the South American culture and convey militant messages. He mainly denounced violence and poverty. INTI is a committed artist.

  • In the 13th arrondissement, at 81 Boulevard Vincent Auriol, on the blind side of a building, you will discover this magnificent monumental fresco. Made in twelve days, with a height of six floors and titled "MADRE secular", it is the work of the Chilean painter Inti Castro. She does not represent a nun..... look at the details, she wears a necklace and a bracelet with heads of death and to her waist she has a belt with rifle bullets... This is a superb work done with a beautiful combination of colors and gradients. You can come by Metro, line 6, station "Chevaleret".
