Immersed in the immense New York skyline “The Mural at the Max” is the latest spectacular work by design studio Karlssonwilker.
An immense work that took 5 weeks, working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week to paint and finish the work.
Just to give you an idea of the size, the artwork is the equivalent of an 11-story building in New York City, about a third of a city block in length.
But the challenge, beyond making something this big was to breathe new life into a completely anonymous facade that faces the back of a garbage truck depot.
A mural conceived with the idea of bringing new light and energy to the residents of the area, transforming it with a beautiful work of contemporary art.
“The Mural at the Max” is 129′ tall x 250′ wide and the design features a futuristic rendering of a three-dimensional cloudscape above New York City.
But that’s not all, if you pay close attention in the middle of the cloud-filled sky you can also notice some short poems.
In fact, Karlssonwilker Studio collaborated with the Poetry Society of New York to include the work of some emerging and not-so-emerging artists. Ten poets were commissioned to write 25-40 word poems celebrating the New York neighborhood, paying particular attention to its history and architecture.
Now we leave you with photos of the monumental work created by Karlssonwilker studio for the city of New York.
