Greek street artist Fikos created the biggest Byzantine painting in the world.
As a part of the Mural Social Club Festival that is taking place in Ukraine a renowned Greek artist Fikos Antonios decorated a 16-floor high building in Kyiv with the world’s biggest Byzantine painting.
The name of the artwork is “Earth and Sky”. “People you see are the personifications of the earth and the sky. The piece became the biggest artwork in history of the Greek art since ancient times. It is definitely the biggest Byzantine mural ever, it is three times higher than the chryselephantine statue of Zeus in Olympia, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world”, says Fikos.
The Mural Social Club Festival is organized by NGO Sky Art Foundation and Dmytro Palienko, curated by Oleg Sosnov and Julia Ostrovska.
The festival line-up includes top street art names, all of whom are coming to Ukraine to decorate the cities with their artwork: Li-Hill, Rodrigo Branco, Evoca1, Fintan Magee, Borondo, Fikos Antonios, Telmo & Miel and others. Ukrainian street artists such as Aec Interesni Kazki, Roman Minin, Sergey Radkevich, Sasha Korban will also take part in the project.
