Artist Covers Entire Walls With Incredible Large Murals of Cities Around the World

Paris-based artist Thomas Dartigues (aka Decktwo) illustrates different cityscapes around the world in his incredible, large-scale mural art. A former street artist, Dartigues ditched the spray can in favor of black markers for his minimalist line drawings. Sketched across large sheets of paper and walls, each sprawling cityscape drawing features some of the world’s most famous landmarks, rendered in incredible detail.

To date, Dartigues’ projects have ranged from live drawing events to commissioned commercial projects. For one project, titled Global City, Dartigues traveled to New York, where he was commissioned to transform a plain white kitchen wall into an immersive, illustrated cityscape. He combined elements from different parts of the globe—including winding roads and rivers, famous monuments, and vast mountainscapes—into one gigantic mural that covered the entirety of the room’s surface, including the kitchen cabinets.

In another project, Dartigues was commissioned by sports fashion brand New Balance to create a mural for their Boston showroom, where the company was founded. The artist incorporated the iconic 574 New Balance sneaker into the cityscape, by illustrating its contours and details with roads, highways, and clusters of detailed architecture.

Inspired by the spirit of each city, Dartigues sees each urban landscape as “a sprawling energy that spreads its tentacles from the center outwards….The city is an entity with two faces: it is a place of tension and power struggles, but also it is an incredible energy vessel.”
