Argentinian street artist Andrés Pereoselli has unveiled a 60-ft-tall mural of environmental activist Greta Thunberg in downtown San Francisco created in collaboration with not-for-profit One Atmosphere.
The 30-ft-wide mural is the first in a series of works that will honour climate-change warriors like Thunberg, who rose to eminence aged just 15 in her native Sweden when she began protesting environmental issues outside of parliament.
One Atmosphere’s executive director Paul Scott told CNN: ‘If we can amplify her message and get more people involved and listening to what she’s saying, then we’re doing some good.’
According to Artnet News, the used spray cans will be repurposed as a sculpture by Petreselli – who is also known as Cobre.
