Lugano, Switzerland
The big pink octopus comes from the deep water directly into a pool of the skatepark of Lugano. No one knows why and no one knows what does it want. The giant and kind Octopus is there and the waves are constantly twirling around for the happiness of the skaters that are going to jump in and start a strange, wet, fresh trip! 

This painting has been published on the photographic book "Pools: Reflections" by Kelly Klein (Rizzoli USA, 2012).
