New Pastel Mural at the Walk & Talk Festival

Street Art // Monday, July 27, 2015
Pastel just completed another mural in Azores, Portugal for the Walk & Talk Festival. Of the wall he told us, "Vascular plants are also known as higher plants or tracheophytes. Their defining characteristic is the differentiation of transport tissue throughout their structure.
