After 180+ hours of studio time and 25+ hours of prep work (Thanks Freshbooks!), our KGMS large scale mural project with Henriquez Partners Architects is finally wrapping up. We’ve spent the past few days packaging all 15 panels up for final art delivery for Tuesday morning. We’ve got exactly 5 more panels to package up for tomorrow but we’re excited that it’s finally finished. This project was a bigger undertaking than we originally thought and have learned a ton from working with such large scale metal panels along with using enamel paints and in combination with KRINK markers and spray paint (KRINK and MOLOTOW markers apparently don’t work well on spray painted surfaces. Who knew!). We’ll be sure to post more photos up once it’s installed at the Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School location. We’re also very thankful to have had Albert Law document the whole project which we’ll post on this site soon.

For now, check out some of the panels in the studio and them getting packaged. A video will also be available to show our production process.
