‘Narcissus’ is Borondo’s latest mural in London and probably the most beautiful I have seen in a while. Not just because a perfect execution, but also the placement of this piece is outstanding.
As in the legend, we see Narcissus reflection in the water, but what we see here could in some way be a reflection of ourselves, Borondo namely painted the portrait in a way that it confronts us, upside-down, using the water’s reflection to create this effect. The video below is magic, promise.
This beautiful mural was made possible thanks to RexRomae, not the last collaboration we hope.

    Love the piece, and the video captures it perfectly, in a way that photography couldn’t. Thanks for sharing.
