Italian street artist MP5 paints beautiful monochromatic murals that are both visually bold and cleverly plays with the surrounding landscape. MP5 uses only black and white paint to craft the images and she draws thick outlines that contour the subject’s bodies for a striking effect.
“The Great Mother” is based on the story of Leda and the Swan from the Greek mythology in which the god Zeus, in the form of a swan, seduces Leda. Leda was daughter of the Aetolian king Thestius, and wife of king Tyndareus of Sparta. The myth of Leda and the Swan remains one of the most celebrated, thanks to the contribution of many artistic representations such as Cezanne or Michelangelo.
“The Great Mother” is a limited edition of 35, 4 layer hand-pulled screen-print on hannhemule 300gsm paper, it measures 50 x 70 cm and comes signed and numbered by the Italian street artist.
The print will be exclusively available in our store on Wednesday October 8th at 5PM BST for £80 each.
