Mural Goes Up and Down with Tide, Will Eventually Fade to Nothing
To find the highest tides on Earth you need to travel to the Bay of Fundy off the east coast of Canada. At some times of the year the difference between high and low tide in the Bay is 16.3 meters (53.4 ft)!
Check out the timelapse of the challenging artwork below:
The final mural measures 30′ x 45′ and took nine days to complete. Each day, Yoro had to deal with a tide that rose and fell by 28 feet. A big challenge was getting the paint to stick to the wall in wet and rainy conditions.
Yoro only uses eco-friendly paint that will eventually wash away. Finding the right eco-friendly combination of paints and sealers was tricky as the majority of his canvas was underwater for most of the time.
Below you will find progress pictures of the amazing mural being painted, along with an embedded video at the bottom that includes Yoro reflecting on the creation of the artwork.
