A public art mural painted by Italian artist, Giuseppe Percivati, was presented as a tribute to the people of Karachi at the International Art Festival on December 19. The 2,300 square feet mural depicts a tropical scene with a glorious blue sky, colourful flowers, drooping branches and an eye-catching bird.
The mural, on GSA House, cannot escape the notice of those crossing through Keamari. Percivati said that it took him two days to sketch the mural and another seven to paint it.
