It was a pleasure to have the Irish muralist Conor HArrington here who brought to life this beautiful monochrome artwork depicting one of his signature colonial characters.
The area chosen for the artist turned out to be the perfect site for one of his large scale murals.
As he mentioned – the buildings at the street made the perfect surrounding for his work being an area of classical architecture.
With this as a background the ancient history of the work gets emphasized even further and underlines the context even more.
The mural is placed at Helgolandsgade 18.
Also the two swiss street artists Wes21 (f.1989) & Onur (f.1981) has just finished a large scale mural at Dannebrogsgade 43; " Big Catch”.
With the selected theme the artists want to touch the subject; "Who’s actually catching who and is getting the benefit of who?
The big fish is getting catched by the fishing boat – but so is also the boat – and the big fish also seems to be bate at the same time…
On the way to Berlin and after just having finished a big piece in the U.S.A., the two artist works intensely for a week in the pouring rain to get the work finished.
Just finished work by the Australian street artist Guido van Helten.
The work can be seen at "Eternitten" in Aalborg, as a part of the story of the worker at the old eternit factory that was once here, which for many years had great significance for many people in the city. Inside the silo there will then be established a workers museum, telling the story of the site.
The project has been developed in cooperation with Søren Enggaard A/S, The city of Aalborg, the Mayor's Office, C. Flauenskjold A/S and not least Birgit Elgaard and Arne Schade.
Accelerating at an enormous speed the two polish artists Robert Proch and Sepe has for the last few years expanded their work both at the international street art scene besides at exhibitions worldwide.
In the spring of 2014 they both participated in the Out in The Open Mural project making the large scale mural; Mayday Mayday!
After preparing for the wok and reading about how Denmark consists of many low-laying areas which easily could get flooded in case of increased global warming they created the mural 'Mayday Mayday!' with two figures looking out for help while the water raises and the symbolic windmills raises in the background.
Located in the rejuvenated freight and railroad district, the mural reflects on the working-class history of the site. It depicts a worker that was part of building the railroad int the 1800. With her very caracteristic strokes Faith47 has managed to make another amazingly strong portrait as part of the history of the place.
The Mural raises clearly along the Øster Allé bridge in downtown Aalborg.
Despite her young age of 35 years FAITH47 has already received much recognition for her work, which now is represented worldwide and has made murals in China, Germany, USA, South Africa and many other places.
FAITH47s success is largely due to the way she is faithful to the surroundings of the murals and the history here. She does not create random works, but works that are related to the specific place.
