“Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

4FkZsJj

I did this wall painting couple of weeks back. It is next to Wanha Kauppahalli, in Helsinki. It’s 6m x 2,4m. I did it with spray paint and a stencil. There’s about 1900 little 5cm x 5cm color pieces in the painting. Name of the painting is “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, a Blade Runner nod.

Wanha Kauppahalli is being renovated at the moment, it’s packaged. You can go check it out if you want. There’s also about 20 other wall paintings there.

I love to paint. This piece was particularly fun to do because I haven’t really spray painted or used a stencil at all. All new for me. I intended the characters to be robots at first, but when they started looking like space invaders, I just went ahead and continued on that path.

This was part of Knitted City, a Multicoloured Dreams project. http://mcdreams.wordpress.com/
