Posted April 13, 2020 19:53:49The first mural to be erected in Baroque London, which was commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was completed by German artist Jörg Jens, who worked with a team of art students to design a mural on the wall of a house in the north London borough of Lambeth.
It was commissioned as part of the National Gallery of Art’s annual Baroquismo Exhibition, a major art festival which takes place each year in London.
The installation was on display for the first time in the city at the Royal Academy of Arts in London’s Hyde Park from April 13 to 18, and has now been on display in the British capital for more than a decade.

Art of Living artist Jens has been commissioned to create a mural of a mural by Dutch artist Johan Jens in the Baroqos gallery in London, England, on May 1, 2019.
Jens created the mural on an unfinished mural wall of the house on the grounds of the Royal College of Art in London in the late 1990s.
“I had a really strong idea that the work I was going to do on the painting was a continuation of the work that I had done on the mural wall, and so I took a lot of inspiration from the wall,” Jens told News24.
After being inspired by the mural, he began designing a new one.
His team spent two years painting the new mural in London using a mixture of traditional techniques and digital techniques.
When the work was completed, the students were able to share it with the public for the opening of a new museum in London and in the US in 2021.
