Urban Sphinx is an animated short film made between 2018 and 2019 that creatively documents the presence of street art at various neighbourhoods of Valencia, Spain. In Urban Sphinx these pieces of ephemeral art are connected like the frames of a film. All these faces look at us with widely opened eyes, as if they tell us that we exist, but maybe we don’t exist - yet the world would go on.​
