On Halloween this year, we worked with New Balance on an activation for the New York City Marathon. They were releasing the NYC Zante which was a new shoe for the marathon. New Balance filled a box truck in midtown with their new shoes and gave away sneakers to runners who were willing to donate the sneakers on their feet! While this was happening, we were creating custom artwork on the exterior of the truck. Check out some photos of the project below along with video of the event!
This was quite a unique job to say the least. A client asked us to paint a mural for their three sons in this rare Upper East Side backyard. Their kids (Jesse, Jaden and Julian) meant the world to them and they asked them what they wanted to see painted in their backyard. The final results were planets, sharks and boxing! Quite the combo but we made it work together nicely in the end. I’ll have to head back to try to get some better photos of each section but in the mean time, I have posted the final product of all three scenes. One of my favorite parts of this mural is the reflection of the surface of the water (above the sharks) which was actually an idea given to us by the client. We hope the whole family enjoys this piece for years to come.
Maximum Mechanical hired us last year to turn one of their portable boiler trailers into a fish tank/aquarium. They recently contacted us again to turn another boiler truck into a subway car. Because we already turned a tractor trailer into a silver subway car a few years ago, we decided to paint an extinct red bird subway car that looked like it was bombed and then reefed to the bottom of the ocean. I am especially happy with the way the broken windows came out. We made the train number “2011” to represent the year that it was painted. The pieces also took first place for a spray paint company’s graffiti competition. This job took multiple days to complete but the hard work paid off in the end!
