Francis Sling – ‘3 o’ clock Romance’ in Scharloo.
Mural by Francis Sling, in Scharloo Abou.
‘3 o’ clock romance’ (2017).
The local flowering Kibrahacha tree. After the eastern façade of the building was painted by visual artist Francis Sling, it quickly became a landmark, drawing people for photographs. The mural of the flowering Kibrahacha with the love-birds against the blue sky, uplifted the building and the neighborhood.
Talented Francis Sling made a short spoken art music video “Paja Rita” (=Little bird or unattainable Rita), featuring a short story, explaining the title of the mural ‘Three o’clock romance’. Click here for the music clip.
