The latest mural by Vinz titled, "La Marca €spaña / The €Spain Brand," is a reinterpretation of Picasso's famous "Guernica." Both pieces represent an attack over Spanish society. Vinz used his own characters and the values they represent to make a profound statement about Spain's current society: financial and political systems are growing and creating a desperate situation among Spanish citizens. On display at the Institut Français, Vinz created this mural to show that justice needs to be restored.
