A 286-foot-high public art mural, claimed to be world’s tallest, was unveiled in Karachi by an Italian painter Giuseppe Percivati.
“I first came in July to find the location, and we visited around five different sites, but as soon as I saw the Centrepoint building, I knew this was the perfect place”, said the artist.
The mural titled ‘Rising Blue’ made by Giuseppe Percivati is part of the International Public Art Festival (IPAF), an initiative of ‘I Am Karachi’.
The mural was a message of peace and friendship, as well as a cry of alarm for the environment. The project took about nine days to paint but months for preparation. He first came last July to find a location and as soon as he saw the TPL Tower (Centrepoint), he said: “This is perfect place.”
