Garbage Whale

For several months the French street artists duo Murmure Street as 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 oniric twists of garbage bags. This object is a symbol of our era and society of consumerism, that invades our everyday life and environment.
This July, Murmure Street has been invited to the cultural festival V-Rox in Vladivostok (Russia) where they completed their first mural on the this theme.
This scaled 1/1 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.
