Zabou was invited to take part in BANK! Festival organised by the municipality of Vastervik in Sweden. The project has created more than 40 murals around the area since its start 3 years ago.
The artist painted a wall in the nearby community of Gunnebo, a village surrounded by lakes and forests. The mural depicts the portrait of local inhabitant Anders holding his family dog Dixie. Anders’s family has been living in Gunnebo for 7 generations. The mural revolves around the idea of companionship and love for pets, who have been a big support for many people during the pandemic.
