Astronaut Neil Armstrong is the subject of this mural located on Fifth Third Bank Headquarters, in the heart of Cincinnati’s Central Business District. The work of art was created by world-famous Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra, who completed this after wrapping up a massive mural in Rio for the 2016 Olympics. Kobra has also completed projects all over the world depicting subjects like Abraham Lincoln, Tupac Shakur, Albert Einstein and Malala Yousafzai.
This mural pays tribute to Armstrong, a Wapakoneta, Ohio native and at the time of its creation, was the largest project in ArtWorks’ 21-year history.
