CREASING Changing the Face of Art in Public Places
The Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, Greece commissioned Greek artist INO to create a mural on the exterior wall of their building. The mural was part of the “No Respect” exhibition, which focused on contemporary forms of art in Athens. The painting is 100 feet tall and shows a crumpled piece of paper with a face emerging from it.
The No Respect exhibition was created in 2014. Over 40 artists participated, and their works of art in public places was spread throughout the Onassis Cultural Centre. Urban artists wanted to bring attention to their skills and creativity, and showcasing their paintings and art installations was a great way to inform the public about what urban art can do. Visitors came from all over to see what was going on at the Centre. A big draw to go inside the exhibit was INO’s outdoor mural. The sheer size of the mural was interesting enough to get people’s attention, and the subject matter was also intriguing.
By commissioning this extraordinary and beautiful piece of art in public places, the Onassis Cultural Centre was able to bring in more visitors to see the exhibit inside.
