A Giant “Garbage Whale” Floating Across The Street In Vladivostok, Russia
For several months the French street artists duo Murmure Street have been developing their latest project : « Garb(age) » that will be revealed in their upcoming exhibition in Paris in 2020.
This series of works are based on poetical and the oniric twists of garbage bags. These bags are a symbol of our era and consumerism, that invades our everyday life and environment.
Earlier this month, the street art duo was invited to the cultural festival V-Rox in Vladivostok (Russia) where they completed their first mural using this theme.
The mural titled “Garbage Whale” represent a garbage bag whale, a zoomorphic trash that serves as a reminder of the ecological disaster that is the “seventh continent” of plastic through the representation of this gracious and placid endangered animal.
This acrylic painting was completed with brushes in order to give a manual rendering where the brush stroke brings life to the mural.
