The Musee de la Poste (Museum of the Poste Office) in Paris has been undergoing massive transformation and architectural refurbishing during the past 6 years. To celebrate its reopening, Butterfly Art News collaborated with artist Hisham Echafaki to create specific artworks for the facade of the new building.

A series of festive panels illustrate different postal boxes through the years and pays tribute to many art movements from Art Nouveau, Art Deco to Pop Art and more.
In parallel, Hisham Echafaki integrated messages about the acceleration of the fauna extinction (from trophy hunting to the increased plastic pollution).
