About the Mural

This mural, created by Evan Skrederstu & Christopher D. Brand of UGLARworks, was installed at L’Age d’Or in the 14th arrondissement, Paris’s Chinatown. This piece celebrates the translated French publication of All Involved: a.k.a. Six Jours (Six Days; translated by Nicolas Richard) from Fayard.

This brushwork mural was completed in six days and features sparrows—from intensely lean & stylized to multi-layered & detailed—carrying a volatile city-in-a-bottle, lit like a molotov cocktail, & on the verge of exploding. Those flames ignite moths trying to escape the tumult.
