With its colourful depiction of trees, flowers, birds and animals, it’s certainly an unusual way to brighten up an otherwise drab block of flats. And this vivid mural could well be the biggest of its kind in the world, covering an impressive 20,000 square metres of Berlin wall. Welcome to the world’s biggest mural.
Created by French company CitéCréation, the mural features birds, bears and even imaginary residents interacting with the painted wildlife that adorns the Wohngenossenschaft Soldaritaet Coop apartments in the German capital.
The impressive work, which the Lyon-based company describes as a trompe-l’oeil, or urban design, was inspired by a nearby zoo. CitéCréation, which employs around 80 artists at its offices worldwide, has created almost 600 ‘monumental frescoes’ in cities across the globe. Art enthusiasts can see creations by the firm in Paris, Lisbon, Jerusalem, Yokohama and Quebic among other places.
