Pink Ambient Street Art
- Client: Brotherhood Media/Sony Music
- Skills: Illustration, Outdoor
In 2010, Sony Music released recording artist Pink’s compilation, “Greatest Hits… So Far!!!” In support of the release through ambient media, I was asked by Brotherhood Media (for client Sony) to create several illustrations of Pink, which would then be applied to the pavement in key locations across London. Developed in collaboration with illustrator/designer Ben Price from Symetria, the prints would be manipulated in production to produce a 3D effect when viewed from a certain perspective.
Working with Ben I began sketching out a selection of poses and renderings of Pink. It was vital that the illustrations typified the artist in both resemblance and characteristics (facial expressions, clothing, tattoos), and much time was spent refining these details. It was also important that the prints reflected the four main sites, and this was achieved by working in particular details, making the images completely ownable.
