In the video embedded below Melbourne street artist Meggs is featured powering through a 6-day marathon painting session to create a 2,000-square-foot mural inspired by the characters of a video game I’ve never heard of called Summoners War. The Mural was constructed in the Arts District neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles, exact address 568 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (if you want to go check it out).
The whole process of the paint job is consolidated into a two minute montage / time lapse, with the video and the mural itself part of a promotional campaign for the U.S. launch of the game, which I suppose means that in some way this blog is now the unwitting tool of corporate overlords just for participating said promotion, but whatevs….
Pretty sweet vid. Kudos to the artist and the marketers who came up with it. You earned your viral share.
