His work began in the world of urban art and it takes conceptual place between public spaces, monuments and contemporary documentation. He is interested in how physical spaces influence the social events that happen in them. His projects seek to redefine what we observe, focusing on details that are not seen, and involving new agents of perspective. The projects he develops seek to have some kind of link with their context, whether formal, historical or social.




Mawa’s project focuses on the micro, observing small details that go unnoticed. Objects, situations, processes… Small things that help to build contexts suited to each person, feeling and emotion. Small spots, wrinkles or cuts that make each situation something different and unique. Separating everyday life from great stories and great heroes, looking at the small things that make the world a better place.

“It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism.”

“I don’t care if anyone believes me” – Joyce Byers
