Most of May I spent in Tahiti and it’s islands. I was invited to paint a large mural in Papeete during the Ono’u festival. With 12 hours time difference and after a 36 hours trip, painting a 16 meters high wall in the heat was quite a challenge. Thanks to some help from local Jops and the French guys Alex, Hopare and Brok, I managed to paint the wall in 5 days – thanks again! Since a lot of other cool people where invited, the event was not just a very interesting mix of artists but also had a very good overall vibe. Thanks to Jean and Sarah for all the efforts in organising! Here are photos of the new mural and a bunch of shots to give you an impression of French Polynesia. I also painted a quick piece at the festival and will upload photos of the other artists murals in a later post.
Most of the photos were taken by the great Selina Miles and Marco Prosch.
