Tim Marsh ‘s latest mural celebrates an expedition between two poles on the longest road in the world, to discover the geography and the soul of the American continent.
The mural is on a 22 m long wall and 6 m high at the University Institute of Technology in Orleans, Central France. A wonderful homage for two wonderful people that exceeded every expectation. Sophie and Jeremy took on an adventure that seems beyond any rational task. From Alaska in North America all the way down to Patagonia in South America on bicycles, this is a tale of adventure and the power of will.
It took them 2,5 years, had no bike background, and had to make everything come true, from the search of sponsors, to the physical preparation. They made an incredible documentary about their journey, and we are very happy to spread their story, together with talented artist Tim Marsh, to inspire more people!
”Tim Marsh told us about his project, we thought we were dreaming! Inspired by our expedition, Tim had the urge to compose a fresco to our effigy to share our story to as many as possible. The Orleans IUT responded positively to this project via the Urban Art Agency. While we were traveling to the Paris region, Tim calls us to say the construction site is starting!”
