London-born and Cape Town-based artist Jake Aikman has unveiled a striking three-story mural on the side of a building in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The painting depicts the dark and stormy Black Sea. The two-layer public painting was produced for Art United Us over nine days last month in Kyiv, Ukraine.
This was Jake’s first time in Kyiv.“I didn’t know much about Kyiv and Ukraine before I arrived, but I knew I wanted to bring the drama of the sea to the city. This was my first attempt at a mural, and previously my largest painting had been a 2m x 4m canvas. I approached it in the same way as my studio based paintings.” Aikman said.
