Fikos In Ukraine

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.
