Mural in Albania “For the street dogs of Tirana”

The mural we did during Mural Fest Tirana 2019 is dedicated to the stray dogs of the city. The problem of homeless animals is very visible in Albania, on the one hand, a big population of dogs in the streets, on the other controlled breed puppies in pet shops for sale.

The posture of the dog for us is monumental, a bit like all the statues of the political heroes. Through it, we wanted to make them more visible in urban space. Our goal was to protest against the mass killing of stray dogs by the government of Albania and to bring more attention to the significance of animal adoption.

The colours we have chosen are corresponding to the place where the wall is situated. Surrounded by trees, one of the main streets of Tirana – Myslym Shyri, gave us an awesome context for the mural and it influenced the tones of colours we decided to use.
