This French pair paints massive murals of sleeping characters on building façades, geometrical lots, and rooftops.
If you see their work from above, then you can grasp the full scope of what they do.
Most of their works include the stripes and color palette that you can see in the French flag and we include their work in some of the best graffiti wall art in the world.
That means their projects feature red, white, and blue colors prominently.
The Duo Tackles Social and Political Issues with Their Work
Ella and Pitr have a mission with their unique murals.
They want to tackle social and political issues that impact their country and the rest of the world.
The duo has even taken on the global refugee crisis with their pieces.
You can also find some that are fun and lighthearted too.
One of their most recent efforts was a mural on the roof of the Paris Parc Expo.
It features a sleeping grandmother who seems to be pointing at the six lanes of traffic that intersect the painting.
She wears a red coat with white and blue stripes.
The project measures almost 270,000 square feet in size.
It took a team of several volunteers eight days to complete the work.
Ella and Pitr have also added giants to roofs and walls in Norway, Croatia, and several other countries around the world.
Who Are Ella and Pitr?
Ella and Pitr met in 2007.
It was a meeting destined by fate because both of them were pasting posters on walls on a random street in the fall of that year.
The pair decided that combining their talents would help them to make a bigger impact with their work.
They both live in St-Etienne, France, which is where Pitr was born.
Over the years, the pair has traveled to Chile, Canada, and several other countries around the world to leave their mark.
Their techniques allow them to work on different forms of media, with their large-format collages becoming part of the modern urban or rural landscape.
