French contemporary artists MonkeyBird recently worked on a new mural entitled “L’échassier” for Boulogne Street Art Festival in France. The mural measures 8 x 9 meters and was completed with handmade stencils.
MonkeyBird is a duo of young artists from Bordeaux — Temor and Blow the Bird. They are known for using symbolic anthropomorphism in their artworks—depicting wild animals in urban areas. They work in stencil, collages, spray painting, drawing, carving, silkscreen, and engraving. They have the obsession of including an animal presence on walls of cities. These animals, aren’t very different from the famous children fables, and playfully sends us back to our human preoccupations, midway between freedom of desire and elevation.
