The Miró Wall is a ceramic tiled wall designed by Spanish artist Joan Miró for the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The wall, which comprises 7,200 tiles, is 55 metres wide and 10 metres high.
The elements in the mural are colorful and fanciful creatures. The 55 by 10 metres mural was produced by Joan Gardy Artigas. He created the 7,200 tiles based on a design by Miró involving surreal figures and animals. Artigas had to work from an image which Miró had created at one-tenth the scale of the finished wall. Using that model, he marked out each section on an individual 20 by 36 centimetres tile. The artwork was completed in 1979 and includes the signatures of both artists at the bottom, left-hand corner. Miró‘s signature is undated; Artigas’ signature is dated 1979.
