Plastered 8 was commissioned by Great Leap Brewing in Beijing to create two pieces of artwork for their #45 location. The story is about the founder's Grandfather in his youth taking out government officials and other characters from his village with a catapult.
The inside image is of the Grandfather with the outside artwork in the back ground.
The outside balcony terrace artwork features the village characters walking on a tightrope above shark infested waters, with the Grandfather in the background.
We used the telephone wires on the wall that couldn't be moved as the inspiration for the tightrope and make them part of the installation. Lining up was a challenge.
Concept by Plastered, directed by Da Qian and illustration by Akira.
