The project happened in September 2018. Tsuru Robotics automatic graffiti drone drew a Sprite mural on the wall of the house. The six-by-six-meter image was drawn at a 14 meters height.

According to the organizers of the competition, our picture was chosen from hundreds of advertising murals. And the victory was brought by the innovative use of an automatic drone.
