To French artists Ella and Pitr, the urban landscape is a playground where giants roam and space belongs to all.
The duo have been working together since 2007, and have created some of the largest murals in the world.
Pictured is ‘The Shipwreck of Bienvenu,’ in St. Etienne, France. The 47 meter mural decorates an abandoned dam wall, and took Ella & Pitr’s team of five artists 2 weeks to complete.
The figure is accompanied by a narrative. The artists describe,
‘after a long trip on his little boat, he finally arrived where he was looking for — thanks to a small picture of the place he dreamt about. He’s now resting, and questioning about what will happen next.’
Did you notice the picture of the dam in the figure's hand?
