Huge mural fuses art and beauty with local community

Huge mural fuses art and beauty with local community

Colorful Communities®, Volunteerism

The "West Gate" of downtown Shanghai, China, the Changning District, is an important commercial area which plays a role as Shanghai's window to the outside world. Now, a huge, two-story PPG mural infuses beauty and peace into this area.

Flowers & Doves Mural 

Named "Flowers & Doves," the mural was created through a PPG COLORFUL COMMUNITIES® project. As a salute to the city of Shanghai, it was painted in a palette of more than 15 colors, chosen to depict the connection between Shanghai and its people and people with common objects, offering them comfort, inner peace and calmness even on their busiest days.

"With the creation of this mural, PPG makes the environment of the community more beautiful and full of artistic elegance. It is our sincere hope that people can feel happy and free whenever they look at this mural," said Cathy Yan, PPG general manager, corporate and government affairs, Asia Pacific.

In early 2020, PPG held a ceremony to officially mark the completion of this project and unveil the fresh paint and cheerful colors used to bring peace, comfort and joy to all who experienced the mural.
