Yesterday, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, the Brazilian street art artist Eduardo Kobra was invited by Guy Antognelli, Director of Monaco Tourist and Convention Authority and Luciana De Montigny, President of the “Brazil Monaco Project” Association, to unveil his work on the quay of the Yacht Club of Monaco. The ceremony was attended by many dignitaries.

This mural, as its title “Global Warming” suggests, refers to the issue of climate change. Inspired by Salvador Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory,” it depicts watches placed on the pack ice. These watches refer to the unforgiving passing of time with regard to the climate. Like the Sovereign Prince and the Principality of Monaco, Kobra is very committed to sustainable development and environmental protection.

This huge painting, which has been given to the Principality, was signed by H.S.H. Prince Albert II before being put on public display at Fort Antoine. The Brazilian artist also gave a painting – an exact 1/10th copy of the work – to H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince.

Eduardo Kobra was born in 1976 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He creates giant, multicoloured, highly recognisable murals, which he installs in the world’s largest cities. His works ask questions, addressing issues of concern such as animal protection and deforestation. Kobra also includes portraits of famous people, peace symbols and symbols of contemporary eras, such as Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Bob Marley, Albert Einstein and Salvador Dali. His colourful murals are an amazing sight for spectators.

A report will follow on Monaco Info and our social networks.
