Cubao Incision

After more than 2 months of night time painting by a team of 4, Tapio Snellman’s mural along the walls of Manila’s busiest underpass was completed in March 2012. The painting, called Cubao Incision, is one of a series of painting along Metro Manila’s Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, one of the major urban arteries in the world.

Commissioned by Boysen Paints to draw attention to their revolutionary air-cleaning paint, KNOxOUT, each of the mural’s around 2000 square meter’s of painted surface has the pollutant absorbing effect of a mature tree.
