HUYRO - DENMARK'S LONGEST STREET ART WORK IN THE MAKING

The long grey wall on Ørestad Boulevard in Copenhagen is right now in the making of becoming one of the longest coherent pieces of street art in the world. The artist Hyuro is transforming the wall with her stroke into a story of a deer moving from light into obscurity, getting consumed by darkness and emerging again on the other side. The work In/Between exploits the entire length of the 271 metres long wall in Ørestad.

In the battle of opposites, nobody wins and nobody loses. It’s just a cycle, just another one. A deer runs and disappears in the trees, the forest devouring it in its branches. You can’t win the race against time. The night will come first and bring its darkness, but Copenhagen can sleep peacefully. The sun will rise again in the morning and the deer will continue along his way. Nature takes its course. Nature meets city meets nature; chaos meets order meets chaos; night meets day meets night.
— Hyuro

Hyuro is painting every day to cover the whole wall with her piece of art. Her work method is fast and thorough and it’s hard to keep up with her. So if you want to experience her in action, you need to act quickly! The wall will be complete May 24th, the same day as her solo exhibition at ArtRebels HQ will open. Find more information about the event here. This whole project has been possible because of a collaboration between The Municipality of Copenhagen, Flügger and ArtRebels.
