Wendy Wu Tours Commissions Murals on The Great Wall of China

It’s a world first – as Wendy Wu Tours commissions a mysterious Chinese street artist to design a series of pig murals along an entire section of The Great Wall of China, near Beijing, for today’s deadline of 1st April.

As the UK, Ireland and Australia’s leading tour operator to China, Wendy Wu Tours was first asked by the Chinese Government to commission the work at the end of 2018 for completion early 2019, coinciding with the Chinese Year of the Pig.

Wendy Wu, founder of Wendy Wu Tours, said: “It was a great honour to be asked by the Chinese Government to decorate a section of the Wall. The difficulty was finding an artist who could do the work to a very tight deadline, 1st April 2019. However, we prevailed and found the perfect street artist with the vision to actualise exactly what we were looking for.”

Given the success of these paintings, Wendy Wu will be scouting for a new artist to carry out the work in 2020 for the Year of the Rat.
