The freehand drawing was never my strong point, during the race I passed the subjects that required that skill by the hair, so when I see someone demonstrate as much skill as the artist Deck Two when performing Global City, a large mural with the city of citiesI have no choice but to take my hat off and admire the magnificent work done.
Taking advantage of a huge white corner, in what seems to be the kitchen of some offices, has drawn a city in which all the great architectural landmarks appear of the most important cities in the world, from the San Francisco suspension bridge to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, including the eternally under construction of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona or the Empire State Building in New York.
In the video we can see the little trick employed so that the work is perfect, and that is that the main lines of the drawing were first drawn on paper and then projected onto the wall, so that later it was only necessary to review them.
I do not think that this detail detracts from such a great work at all, it simply gives us an idea of how something can be achieved that at first sight seems unattainable. It fascinates me especially how well the artist handles the sense of perspective and details; It seems that the wall is a window to the city and not a two-dimensional image.
Really beautiful. I don't know about you, but I wanted to create a large impact wall with a decorative mural like this.
