SUN AND MOON

Sun and moon is a mural I painted on an abandoned ex-fuel tank base between Nuuk and Nuussuaq. It is based on an Inuit tale regarding the creation of the sun and the moon. The first reason I chose the specific theme is that the architecture of the base was ideal to create something multi-dimensional that evolves around the walls of the construction, creating a visual narrative that can be read from different angles.

Furthermore, I was really interested in the story because it responds to the Greenlandic environment regarding the interchange of light and darkness through the year.
