What you’re looking at is a kitchen wall, covered in drawings – a fluid design on a New York residential wall depicting the greatest monuments of several cities melting into a global artistic vision. The Global City Wall is the brainchild of artist Deck Two, who created a fresh perspective on two high white walls. Extending its dynamic shape across two walls, this black and white wall painting showcases the artist’s love for drawing. Found on Fubiz, Global City Wall is an inspirational project that must have started with sketches of different cities – the artist’s portfolio proves that this creative wall expression came after tackling with this idea for some time. There is even proof of the meticulous work that went into this project – a video by Nathalie Thomas and Lapicorey Dartigues which you can enjoy after the photos.
