Vanity Fair and Cadillac partnered to transform the urban landscape through a larger than life art installation. The “Art in the Streets 2012” project entailed finding an artist and the perfect blank canvas to create and unveil a piece of original art.
The collaborative duo turned to legendary street artist Barry McGee, a.k.a. Twist, as the visionary for the mural. The wall chosen, on the Mark Morris Dance Center, proved to be the perfect location to showcase Barry's creation. The wall is in the center of a Downtown Brooklyn cultural hub and steps to the brand new Barclays Center.
With a visionary and location, Vanity Fair and Cadillac turned to Colossal for the actual installation. Painting the wall, at 96' X 97' feet, required Colossal's photo realistic replication expertise and technical know-how. In less than 10 days, Colossal transformed the wall into a colorful masterpiece capturing every detail of the art provided to us by Twist.
The completely unbranded, Cadillac sponsored, art mural will be featured in the December issue of Vanity Fair. Read Less
