The piece, by Lve Wang (Taiwan) was of a large wall mural. The image was drawn solely using a marker pen, shown in stunning detail, taking up the entire wall and catching the audience’s attention. The idea is the image is of two men wrestling, sharing energy to each other. It is amazing to think it was drawn just with a marker pen due to the level of detail and the size of the image created.
