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.
