Massive Mural “The Sinking of Welcome” by Artists Ella & Pitr

French artists Ella & Pitr draw attention to the ongoing plight of refugees with their latest project. “Le Naufrage de Bienvenu” (or “The Sinking of Welcome”) stands over 47 meters high and covers the Piney’s dam in the Loire Valley. A striking reminder that a refugee’s struggle doesn’t simply end once his or her destination has been reached, the mural depicts a cramped figure holding a picture of the landmark on which he is painted.
