I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work on a large, 90m2, wildlife mural in Greystones' Park and Ride. The mural was commissioned by Wicklow Arts Office for Culture Night 2020.
Greystones is a beautiful Irish seaside town, so I chose to paint marine animals that are native to the nearby Irish Sea (basking shark, common seal, bottlenose dolphin, crab, tuna, cormorant, sea horse, jellyfish).
While you may be lucky enough to spot an orca or a basking shark while diving in the sea, these animals can be difficult to see in person.
Thanks to the wonderful weather (Indian summer!) I could work 11-12hrs a day and complete the mural in less than two weeks.
You can see the final result in the video I posted on Twitter
And I made it! :D— Aga Grandowicz (@AgaGrandowicz) September 25, 2020

Here's a video on YouTube showing the work in progress.
