The Beakerhead Komboh installation has been orchestrated by artists Michael Mateyko and Hans Thiessen. Beakerhead is a festival based in Calgary that celebrates collaboration between the fields of science and engineering, hence Komboh's creation of an eco-friendly graffiti display.

Eco-chalk is used as the base for this installation. Whether applying or removing the chalk, the substance has a minimal impact upon the environment, offering a different medium for fans of graffiti design.

Thus far, everyday commuters and Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi have enjoyed the underpass artwork. To produce the funky all-white characters, the eco-chalk was imported from the U.S. Given its warm reception in the city, it may spur a new interest in the product and its ability to mitigate the use of harmful toxins.
