Argentine street artist Martin Ron is in Belgium and has just completed this huge 3-D artwork on the side of a container tower as part of the North West Walls project on the site of the Rock Werchter music festival. Ron’s surreal design, featuring a parrot, a giant head and a monkey nut, covers an area of 205m2 on the sides of seven shipping containers and took him nine days to complete.
