Kai & Sunny’s Mural on Reception Wall

I was mesmerized by Kai & Sunny’s Migration East mural, which I first saw on It’s Nice That. The 20 x 26 ft mural covers a white wall on London’s St Katharine Docks. Giving a lot of character to the space, this vibrant, soft and dynamic mural is in contrast with the more static, stencil-like graphics that are being frequently used lately to compliment a building’s interior.
