“The mural is my interpretation of an ancient symbol of Peace, the white dove. Throughout history many cultures and artists have used the majestic bird as a powerful emblem of hope, purity, and freedom. However, in my rendition, it breaks through the peace symbol, symbolizing the need for action and struggle to achieve true peace in our world, rather than passive acceptance.”

about the artist

Frédéric Battle, also known as Zoer, was born in 1985 in Tours, France. He lives and works in the french Alpes Maritimes. Battle graduated from the Strate school in product design: the study of the object has determined his pictorial research.

At a time when the materials used in industry are designed according to dizzying consumption patterns, the degradation of forms and materials worked by man is at the heart of his plastic explorations. It is notably by looking at wrecks that he explores the state of transformation and transition of matter and form.

about the artist

Originally from Australia, Smug has called Scotland home for over 20 years. An internationally renowned artist known for his realistic large-scale mural installations, Smug takes inspiration from people and nature, exploring the harmony in the relationship between the two. With his trademark understanding of light and shadow Smug’s elusive painting can often juxtapose themes together such as death, playfulness, melancholy and unadulterated joy. Whilst his technique stays true to his foundation with traditional graffiti Smug’s murals can be seen as “stylized realism” with hyper realistic elements achieved freehand, primarily with spray paint.

In his piece FLORA, Claude BLO Ricci plays with the building architecture and the landscape by proposing a giant collage-painting involving shapes, lines and textures to invite the viewer into this surreal abstract landscape.

about the artist

Claude BLO RICCI’s uses creativity as a device to question, invert or pervert aspects of daily life. There is a recognizable speed of the hand, looseness of line, as well as composition and materials that directly draw from traditional graffiti. His current street work has become more figurative, drawing from religious imagery, sex, death, and classical painting. Within the exploration of this subject matter another parallel to graffiti is conceptualized the assertion of power by actively defacing or reappropriating common images.
