The initiative was taken by International Public Art Festival (IPAF) and I Am Karachi. The two organizations teamed up to have Center Point building in Karachi decorated with world’s tallest mural by a single artist.
The 286 feet mural has been made by Giuseppe Percivati, the artist also known as PepeGaka. His artwork depicts Pakistan’s ‘Mangrove Forest’ and is hoping to raise awareness about increasing deforestation in Pakistan. After all, the country is the 7th most vulnerable to climate change.
According to the artist, the Centre Point building mural is an image of Pakistan’s coastal line. There’s an eagle soaring overhead in a central-top position.
The artwork was officially inaugurated on 25th January in Karachi.
The art community is particularly honoured to see such a feat associated with Pakistan and look forward to similar programmes in Karachi.
