Her simple but striking black and white murals can be seen on streetscapes in Italy, Poland, Spain, Mexico, Norway, Germany and her home country of Argentina.
But in Atlanta, Hyuro has received a different reception from a few vocal opponents in Chosewood Park after the unveiling of her nude mural last week for the non-profit Living Walls project.
So Hyuro's work will be painted over, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The mural, located on the eastern wall of the former General Motors Lakewood Plant at the corner of Sawtell Avenue and McDonough Boulevard, depicts a nude woman in a series of stances in which she disrobes herself of a black outfit.
The discarded garment transforms itself into a dog or wolf.
But the images proved too much for some, leading to the property owner deciding it needed to be removed.
Tajiddin Muwwakkil, the imam at the neighboring Masjid Al-Quaran, called the work “pornographic and offensive,” and was one of the leading opponents to the work, the AJC reported.
The mural is to be painted over by Monday, the newspaper said, quoting Nathan Bolster, the Living Walls Conference's executive director of operations.
