From 3rd to 9th July
Despite her young age, the Polish artist Natalia Rak has already had a remarkable artistic career. In 2011, she began with her first large-scale paintings; since then, she has been booked worldwide and has also participated in various noteworthy street art festivals. You can read about her career here.
Let yourself be carried away into the world of Natalia Rak's murals!
To the work at Hochfeldstraße 137, Ludwigshafen-Gartenstadt:
The artwork is created on the other side of the façade of the same building where the palm tree is already emblazoned: please look at the previous article Agostino Iacurci.
Natalia started her work in the darkness of the evening of 3rd July 2021: a projection on the wall of the building allowed her to sketch the entire future work. Unfortunately, I was not able to document this, I only captured the result on Saturday, 4th July.
The next day I was able to talk to Natalia for the first time. When I asked her if her work had a name, she shook her head with a smile: "No! Not even a working title". Spontaneously I thought of: "Lady in Bath", because this central motif caught my eye first. "Why not?" laughed Natalia.
A few days later, the work became much clearer and I renamed it "TeaTime'" for myself.
