Couple of weeks ago Phlegm was in Norway as a guest of Urban Samtidskunst and Galleri Lauritzen, painting a huge mural in an industrial town on Moss. Being at the premises of one of the biggest paper factories in the area, the artist was influenced with the old industrial architecture, and the present situation at the closed facility. Instead of ghostly halls, the artist witnessed new life being brought to these spaces through creative events, music, and great upcycling projects.
For the massive 25x35m he was painting, he decided to go with an entire new complex composition, using the wall sections as comic windows, instead of one large image. The idea was to use the architectural shapes and elements from his surrounding, which resulted with this impressive mural titled Totems. Along with painting one of the biggest walls in his career, this was a breakthrough concept for the artist and chances are we’ll be seeing more such murals from him in the future.
