Portuguese artist Bordalo II has just completed a new wall in the city of Nancy. His polar bear and his 2 cubs have taken place on the wall of a nursery school, impossible to find a better audience for the message about environmental emergency awareness.
“This is the first time I’ve made a polar bear. A species that, unfortunately, perfectly illustrates the urgency of the situation. Doing it on a school wall makes all the more sense, because I’m still hopeful that the younger generations won’t repeat the same mistakes we made in the past, and are still making today.”
The Mathgoth Gallery curated and provided artistic support for the production of this work.
Five years ago, the city of Nancy implemented a major cultural policy focused on urban art and it is within the framework of the “ADN” (Art Dans Nancy) program that this new fresco was created. Bordalo joins other big names such as Jef Aerosol, Kogaone, David Walker, Momo or Vhils.
