I had to share this with from metro.co.uk as it’s incredible:
Chinese artist has unveiled a 3D street painting that covers an area of 2,737.5 metres squared – making it the largest in the world.
Yang Yongchun and his team painted Rhythms of Youth on a path on the campus of Communication University of China in Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province, to commemorate the second Summer Youth Olympic Games.
Rhythms of Youth shows the Nanjing cityscape and the Yangtze river as well as the games’ mascot Lele.
The painting, which is a whopping 27,986 square feet large (2,737.5 metres squared), smashes the previous world record of 12,490 square foot (1,120 metres squared), set by British artist Joe Hill in 2011, as well as taking the title for longest street painting at 365 metres
‘It took my team more than 20 days to finish the painting on the ground,’ said Yongchun.
‘Every day, we worked on it from daybreak when we could barely tell the colours apart until it turned too dark to see anything.’
