If you’re visiting French capital these days, you can check out James Reka working on his biggest mural yet. Painting the facade of a 10 storey building in Paris’ 13th arrondissement, Australian-born artist did an amazing progress in only 3 days on a cherry picker.
For this 30 meters high and 10 meters wide wall he got thanks to Gallery Mathgoth, Reka is planning on using some 250 liters of paint. After priming the wall, he already finished doing the outlines of the piece and is now filling out the colors. From the photos we received the mural will be character based along with his signature abstract elements . Visible from the Paris ring it will surely become a landmark of the area.
Check out more progress images after the jump and come back soon for the photos of the finished monster piece.
