AS reported by Euro Weekly News last week, street furniture was painted gold by an unknown ‘artist’ in Rincon de la Victoria.
Now the town’s mayor, Francisco Salado, has taken into consideration the significant and positive response that the news has had amongst local people on social media, with many people commenting that these pieces of furniture looked better after the ‘makeover.’
“This is not the right way to do things but if the author has a project to improve the furniture of Rincon de la Victoria, he or she should present it in the town hall and we will discuss it,” said Mr Salado.
“The urban furniture is owned by the whole town and we at the council are the ones in charge to decide its colour. The author should have contacted us first, as many other street artists have done before, and we have made agreements to decorate areas such as El Cantal or the surroundings of the Totalan River,” he said.
The mysterious golden pieces of furniture have also appeared in Malaga City, including in the areas of El Ejido and near the Contemporary Art Centre.
