Working with a team of 10 and using over 200 gallons of latex paint including spray paint, Atlanta-based artist, Hense, recently completed this 137 foot tall and 170 feet wide mural in Lima, Peru. More known for his bold illegal graffiti, in the past couple years the artist’s work has changed, moving in a nonrepresentational and abstract direction. Speaking on this particular mural Hense said “These works are inspired by the architecture and context of the structure. In this case I wanted to use very bright colors that would pop against the sky and next to other near by architecture in Lima.” He went on further saying “With all my exterior projects, I rarely use a preconceived sketch or concept to go off of. In this case, I presented a few rough concepts to the school to express my vision for the building. However, I always like to leave some room for creative freedom and spontaneity while working.”
