Cuban artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is known for its striking and large-scale drawings. But this time, he presented his work at the Art Festival in Belfast in the form of a giant portrait of an unknown girl on the field, which can be seen only with the highest points in the city.
Work on the portrait, occupying 11 acres near the museum dedicated to the infamous “Titanic”, the artist took a few years.
For manual marking of territory in accordance with pre-arranged scheme took about 30,000 wooden pegs. The position of each of them was determined with the help of GPS-receivers «Topcon». Next portrait was “painted” with the help of volunteers who posted this month on the field more than 3.5 tons of natural materials: earth, stones and sand.
