World’s tallest mural

| In conjunction with BUMP Festival in Calgary, Canada.

The BUMP Festival is launching an early start to the mural season with the help of the legendary German graffiti artist, DAIM. Calgary’s citywide urban-art festival is partnering with the artist for his Canadian debut where he and his team paints the world’s tallest, 95 m / 310 feet tall, mural in Calgary’s vibrant Beltline neighbourhood. 

The mural is painted in cooperation with Verve Projects on the east wall of Hazelview’s First on Tenth at 123 10th Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta in the center of the Beltline, just across from the landmark Calgary Tower.  

Now in its 6th year, the BUMP Festival is creating a landmark mural in Calgary that cements the city on the international map as a creative hub for artists and powerful public art. 

DAIM, born Mirko Reisser, is an internationally renowned artist who has been creating public artworks for 30+ years. His work has been exhibited in prolific galleries and museums around the world including the MACRO Museum Rome, Italy, Museum of Modern Art Bremen, Museum Marta Herford, Germany. In 2019 the Contemporary Art Center in Rouen, France featured a 30-year retrospective exhibition of his work.
Known for his large-size, 3D-style graffiti works, balancing a variety of content and techniques with his individual style, DAIM’s geometric figures and letters obey the laws of light and shadow, but defy gravity and space, transporting the beholder to new dimensionsHis work is nurtured from urban landscapes, as well as absorbing influences from printmaking, painting, and architecture. DAIM brings his years of experience and influences to this Calgary mural, which is a major career milestone for him as well.
