DYO Supports Izmir's Longest Mural Art Work

DYO, Turkey's longest-established and local paint manufacturer, made the longest mural work in Izmir by painting the retaining wall of Manda Stream in cooperation with Mistral Izmir and Ege Perla within the framework of its "Mural Arts" projects.

The leading company of the Turkish paint industry, DYO created a visual feast by coloring the 400-meter-long gate between the Manda Stream in Izmir's Konak district and Mistral Izmir - Ege Perla.

7 artists who showed the project, which is one of the biggest wall painting researches to be done in one piece in Turkey, worked for 1 month and painted with DYO Teknotex Filled Primer, Akromax and Hidrolux products in approximately 2 thousand square meters. While DYO supported this project with 80 different color tones, the DYO Akromax product used on the floor and the blue ground color specially worked on for this project drew attention. At the end of the work, the wall was turned into an aquarium.

DYO Akromax, a matte exterior paint resistant to sunlight, moisture and water, thanks to the special purifier it contains, it acts as a shield against discoloration as well as its low pollution tendency.

İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer, who visited the workshop, congratulated the artists for their hard work and said that a very beautiful, pleasant work came out.
