A 286-foot-high public art mural, claimed to be world’s tallest, is painted in Karachi to give a message of conservation of mangroves in Pakistan. The mural titled ‘Rising Blue’ was made by Italian artist Giuseppe Percivati as part of International Public Art Festival (IPAF), to serve a message of peace and friendship, as well as a cry of alarm for the environment.
The project took about nine days to paint and was painted on the TPL Tower (Centrepoint). Describing the artwork’s symbolism, IPAF chairman Jameel Yusuf said that the mangroves supported Pakistan’s ecosystem as a breeding ground for marine life and birds.
