Garbage Bird - Street Murals

Creator not accepting inquiries

This large scale mural, titled Garbage Bird, was completed for the 2019 Pow ! Wow ! Rotterdam ! Festival. It is Murmure's second mural from their Garb(age) project and represent a garbage bag bird, a zoomorphic trash that serves as a reminder to all the recents studies pointing out that by 2050, 99% of all marin birds will have ingested plastic. With this artwork Murmure Street want to raise awareness on the fragile nature of those animals that are among the first victims of human waste. Unlike the Garbage Whale mural this time Murmure Street aims for a more realistic rendering to emphasize the real nature of the situation and the ecological emergency to act.

Wescover creator since 2019
Murmure Street is a French street artist duo composed of Paul Ressencourt and Simon Roche.
Both graduates of Fine Arts schools, they intervene in the streets since 2010, covering the walls of our cities with drawn characters, ephemeral exhibitions and murals.
The main focus of Murmure Street is to create playful, dreamlike and poetical artworks interacting with the urban environment they are set in. Although there is always a message when created by the artists, everyone is free to interpret Murmure’s work as they wish.
Depending on the nature of the project Murmure Street is involved in, they will use different techniques ranging from free hand painting, drawing, stencil (mostly for shadows) and paste-up. Combined with acrylic, spray paint and black chalk, Murmure Street aims for an hyper realistic rendering mixed with surrealism making their graphic signature unique.
