UK based artist Phlegm is collaborating with the Royal Opera House in London Covent Garden this month. We followed Phlegm as he created a large scale outdoor installation for the Festival of Myth curated by Minna Moore Ede of the National Gallery and the Royal Ballet, which will be on display until September 28. Influenced by the Greek myths, Prometheus and Leda and the Swan, cut out wooden panels build an imposing sculptural fortress that stands tall on the piazza entrance to the opera house, and Phlegm’s signature characters blend harmoniously with mythological figures.
Phlegm also painted a large mural on the inside of the opera house depicting a tree hung with smoldering objects and entangled with celestial orbs, which will be up for at least the next year. A series of nine hand made coper etching are also displayed next to his indoor mural.
