A Massive Mural of Greta Thunberg Will Debut in San Francisco Next Week
MADELEINE CARLISLE November 9, 2019 A massive mural of teen climate activist Greta Thunberg will debut next week in central San Francisco, overlooking passers-by on Mason Street near Union Square.
The 60-ft.-tall and 30-ft.-wide mural is by Cobre, an Argentinian artist who also painted the mural of late actor Robin Williams in San Francisco, which has since been demolished. The muralist is known for his hyper-realistic portraits. (リンク先に続きあり)
Cobre tells TIME that the project of Thunberg’s mural began about a year ago when environmental non-profit One Atmosphere approached him after seeing the mural of Williams.
One Atmosphere helped Cobre get permission for the wall for the Thunberg mural and covered the expenses of his painting materials. Cobre is donating his time to complete the piece. It will debut on Tuesday, Nov. 12, after 10 days of painting.
