Water, please

World-known Italian artist Agostino Iacurci just finished his large-scale mural in Kyiv, Ukraine as a part of the Mural Social Club Festival. The title of the artwork is ‘Water, please”.
The mural is a part of Iacurci’s series of new interventions depicting “Still lives”. The painting represents a classical subject of still life with an indoor plant transposed on an exterior public wall in an oversized scale.

“The work has been inspired by the reading of the blog “Another Ukraine”, which describes unexpected and non-stereotyped elements of culture and nature of Ukraine, for example its flora, that features a wide variety of plants coming from all over the world and able to adapt to different parts of its territory”, Agostino explains.

    I find it a wonder how painters like him can actually use a tall building as a canvas. Questions in my mind… did he used a ladder or perhaps a crane? 🙂

      These large scale murals are often part of some project where the artist is asked (and often paid) to come and paint the building. They usually use a crane 🙂 I can’t imagine how hard it would be to paint a whole building illegally :)…
