A giant mural in Warsaw that absorbs pollution like 780 trees

A giant mural located in Warsaw (Poland), next to the Politechnika metro station, has been painted by local artists Dawid Ryski and Maciek Polak using special pigment.

Such pigment has been created as part of the Converse City Forests project that, through murals, aims to cleanse pollution from the environment as if they were real trees. The pigment uses light energy to break down harmful pollutants in the air and turn them into harmless substances like nitrates. Any surface coated with this paint becomes an active air-purifying surface that helps protect people from harmful gases.

The giant ecological mural has the cleaning power of 780 trees. The goal is to produce art equivalent to 3000 trees by creating other types of murals in cities like Sidney, São Paulo, Lima and Bogotá.

So, not only are the facades of certain buildings being adorned with authentic works of art by urban artists, but the paintings also contribute to a cleaner environment.
