UK based artist Helen Bur has just completed a new painting in Boulogne-Sur-Mer, France. Entitled “Shift of the centre” the mural, approx 12x9mt, was painted for the Boulogne-Sur-Mer street art project organised by Amziane Abid. With a strong connotation linked to the concept of motherhood and revaluation of one’s ego, a mother draws a new center around her child, to signify new boundaries of one’s love and one’s perspective.
Through her art, Helen Bur shows that beauty can be a catalyst for change, inspiring individuals to take action and make a positive impact on the world around them. Each piece tells a story, encapsulating the essence of the neighborhood it inhabits. Her murals often reflect the history, culture, and aspirations of the community, forging a connection between the art and its surroundings. This ability to bridge the gap between art and life is what makes Helen Bur’s work so magnetic. Her unique blend of creativity, storytelling, and social consciousness has redefined the boundaries of art, showing that the streets can be both a canvas and a stage for meaningful expression. With every stroke of her brush and every splash of color, she unveils the soul of the city, inviting us all to look deeper, think harder, and embrace the beauty that surrounds us, even in the most unexpected of places.
