About the Mural
Sasha said that his mural conveys the relationship between a man and a woman, their friendship, love, just relations between two humans. Korban does not specify the plot deliberately: he doesn’t say if the couple is dancing or the just met occasionally. “The viewer needs to have the opportunity to see their own script. Maybe to remember something or to dream about something”, adds an artist.
