Holly Pereira mural in Belgrade 2022-05-29

Holly Pereira mural in Belgrade

This is a 21 metre tall depiction of a girl weaving a traditional Serbian rug, celebrating the work that women do, and also trying to highlight the cultural importance of textile arts – something that often is relegated to the pejorative area of “craft”!

It took 9 days to paint in conditions that ranged from snow to blistering sun, all on a very bouncy cherrypicker.

Mural in Belgrade, Serbia, for Belgrade Irish Festival 2022.

Based on the weavers of Pirot Kilim. Artwork by Holly Pereira. Assistant Jorge Ruiz.
