The fourth mural in the context of the 5th International Street Art Festival of Patras ArtWalk 5 is nspired by the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. EDMON1419 wanted to honor one of the most important composers of the classical music repertoire by creating a work of art that would be in complete harmony with its environment and location. Street art artist, EDMON1419, was working on the wall at a feverish pace, to “complete” the urban fabric of Patras with another large thematic mural.
The wall on Geor street. Olympiou 90 in Patras, is now adorned by Ludwig van Beethoven.
“While researching the theme of the festival about Beethoven, I discovered many fascinating elements, but only one of them tied the theme itself to the environment of the wall. “The Creatures of Prometheus”, one of the unique ballets composed by Beethoven, is considered a very important work in his career and is associated with the beauties of Greek mythology “, the artist himself typically tells us.
