Goya Torres

They are us, We are them

Street Art, Visual Art


'They are us, We are them' symbolises the importance of the environment and the other species that co-habitate with us. The mural shows two children dressed as animals, sharing 'rain' as an act of hope. There is no distinction: We are one with nature, as we come from it. 


Goya Torres is a visual/street-artist and muralist from Sydney, originally from Mexico. Her practice moves towards blurring the separation line between fine arts, street-art and illustration in order to develop a visual contemporary language that encapsulates reality nowadays. She has been involved in group exhibitions, live-painting events, street-art festivals, mural and public art projects internationally around Australia, Mexico, Latino-america, USA, United Kingdom and Europe. She has painted over 25 murals, some for Lane Cove Council, Taronga Zoo Sydney (Wild! Rhino project, sponsored by Hotel Steyne), the Hurley Australian Open of Surfing (St George Bank Surf Wall), Warringah Council, Port Macquarie Hastings Council (Hello Koalas project, sponsored by ABC Mid North Coast and Discover Magazine) and the Duke's Day Festival in Freshwater. She has been sponsored by aerosol brands such as MOLOTOW & Rodin (paint sponsors 2017) and NBQ (paint sponsor 2017, 2018).
