on an old factory building in Shenzhen, muralist collective boa mistura painted two words on top of each other. the words overlap to create a third character. a new character: the combination of ’development’ and ‘tradition.’ what the artists call, ‘ balance .’ with paint and language (two evocative powers, accessible to all social classes, races, genders and ages) boa mistura crafts a universal message. designboom was in Shenzhen for UABB and sat down with the humble members of boa mistura to talk process and intention.
