James Reka recently finished his largest mural ever at 18 Rue Regnault in the Arrondissement des Gobelins in Paris. Working five long days on a cherry picker, the Berlin-based artist spent some 250 liters of paint for this massive piece.
Covering a 30 meters high facade of a 11 storey residential brick wall building, the Australian-born artist painted a recognizable colorful piece. By putting together abstract, organic looking shapes, he was able to create this figurative image that mirrors the work presented at his recent solo show in Milan (covered). Leaving the actual brick wall texture as the background of the piece, REKA incorporated this sharp but flowing female beauty in the concrete surroundings of Paris’ 13th District.
