Waterford Walls is an urban art festival based in Waterford in Ireland. Zabou was invited to take part in its seventh edition and paint a wall in the district of Ballybeg. This year, the festival also organised a mentorship program where professional artists are matched with emerging ones. Her mentee, Juliette Viodé, is a French artist and illustrator based in Dublin.
The mural represents a portrait of twin sisters Rhiannon and Faye, laying next to each other and holding hands. It is based around the concept of ‘same but different’ and explore the identity and relationship between twins.
