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. Since the colonization of these volcanic islands, non-native flora has been imported, which, due to the distinctive Micronesian climate, has become endemic and unique to the region itself.
