The largest graffiti art commission in history?! O1NE Yas Island

I finally got to the wall at O1NE Yas Island!!! A few of my students came (along with the most excellent photographer Scott Barfield) and we spent an hour basking in the literal awesomeness of this wall. The basics: 18 international artists, 5500 cans of paint, about 15? lifts, and an 18 meter high 2,500 sqm round building. Professional pics to come…but for now here is a link to the public Facebook Album.

Interested in some news on the project? Here are some links:
