3D floor mural in Baku, Azerbaijan

The Positive arts team had the pleasure of being invited to Baku in Azerbaijan to create a huge 3-d floor mural for the IDEA, an organisation run by the presidents daughter Leila. It was in a new new park in the city centre and measured around 7 x 20 metres. It took 5 days of backbreaking work to create the illusion of looking down into a waterfall surrounded by mountains, featuring the big five animals in Azerbaijan- caucasian leopard, brown bear, eagle, wolf and gazelle. Everybody was really amazed by the outcome and the local loved taking photos. The mural was officially opened by the Presidents daughter Leila and lots of other government officials.

During our time there we also helped and mentored some young aspiring Azerbaijani artists. We assisted them to create there own floor murals next to ours.
