Blur Street Art Timelapse, Hackney, London
BLUR CRASHES INTO LONDON British Artist Crafts Life-Sized 3D Mural to Celebrate the Launch of Activisions Blur This week, stunning pieces of 3D-perspective street art by internationally renowned artists, have materialised across a selection of European cities to mark todays launch of adrenaline-pumping racing game Blur. Inspired by the intense gameplay and dazzling graphics, the murals bring the true essence of the game to life in incredible 3D. What, where and when? The 3D artwork, which from a specific perspective fully pulls the audience into the piece, features two cars crashing through the wall at high speed directly into a rainbow-drenched fantasy world. Designed and Created by UK-based artist, Gavin Nolan, the London mural adorns the wall of the Old Street Magistrates court in the heart of trendy East London and has been catching the eyes of passersby since Wednesday. About the artist: An internationally established artist educated at the Royal Academy, Gavin Nolan* has been working laboriously, taking over 30 hours, to bring the colossal mural to life. Using a mixture of materials including water-based acrylic and spray paint, Gavin and his team were able to paint the mural directly onto the wall. Taking inspiration from Blur has allowed us to juxtapose the real world vs. the fantasy giving us, as artists, the perfect opportunity to create striking and eye-catching imagery, explained Gavin Nolan.
