Famous Painting “Ophelia” Recreated as a Large Mural on a Boat’s Roof by Borondo.
Spain-based street artist Borondo came up with an idea to recreate famous painting Ophelia by John Everett Millais as a huge mural. Following to this he got an opportunity to realise an idea of a mural on a vessel travelling along the River Lee in East London. He created it in collaboration with Carmen Maín.
In Borondo and Maín’s new version, gestural brush strokes were applied to a figure in a similar pose. Their approach differs, however, and the woman has a red cloth over her eyes and interlocking hands. She’s surrounded by green flora and is still on the water – this time, though, it’s real.
