In early December the Swiss artist painted a whole external wall of the Art Villa with great views over Baku city, depicting two faces of a man and a beautiful woman disigned in comics style. On it a nice greating to Baku "Hello Baku" and some local hints hidden in the typical scarf with Buta signs.
