2501 just finished a new mural in Kiev, Ukraine and its just AMAZING! It’s the biggest mural ever so far!
It’s incredible, isn’t it? This is the biggest mural ever painted so far! The mural is part of his Nomadic Experiment project, where he explores the interaction with the reality that can generate physical work of art.
The 26 storey building is the biggest the artist has ever painted and the whole mural process lasted for 4 days, working 12 hours a day. 8 litters of black paint and 2 litters of gold paint we used to produce the mural.
By the way, this mural was made possible by Art United us and curated by Geo Leros, Iryna Kanishcheva, Waone Interesni Kazki, Ilya Sagaidak .
“I never have sketch for my intervention I work constantly on ideas and I adapt myself in a conversation with architectural and social environment where i m pushed for few days in a sort of action/reaction chain.”
“Many times I’m traveling to paint walls. I spend a long period of time creating my art and concentrating in the process together with people that I never seen in my life. In certain way influences my approach on what i m doing . This was the case with Mikhail the guy operating my lift.”
Mikhail was born and rase in the neighborhood where 2501 painted the mural. He knew the city and the culture of their country… a real insider.
The mural incorporates an abstract representation of the national symbol of Ukraine, mixed with the personal history of Mikhail and the story of the neighbourhood.
