Art & Culture
Whitney Museum's 2012 Biennial kicked off March 1st, and through Overall Murals we integrated the only two hand painted ads in the institution's promotional campaign. Whitney's graphic design department adjusted the art pieces and added the essential event information to display in the West Village and next to Williamsburg's artsy area of Bedford Ave. Within three days, the still of a boxer from a film by Frederick Wiseman was replicated to temporarily adorn Bleecker Street.
In another handful of days, an image taken inside the museum itself by Gregory Holm, with its extremely detailed ceiling and lighting patterns, was hand painted adjacent to the constantly busy Bedford Ave. subway station. Due to the fact we have not missed the last three Biennials (and most definitely won't miss this one), it was an honor to paint these murals based on actual images from the exhibition.
