We like to post cool time-lapses on the site every now and then. This time around I came across a pretty impressive time-lapse featuring a spray painted mural for promotion of Tron Legacy. Like it or not Tron was/is a big deal and so is this mural. Credit for the filming goes to Distillery Productions and Toby Summerskill. According to Hypebeast, “this groundbreaking project was filmed in December 2010 and January 2011, in a warehouse in Shoreditch with the exterior shots taken from the rooftops of East London.” Tip of the hat to the artist behind the piece and to the guys filming this. Well done.
Some of you might remember our post from Copenhagen Fashion Week, back in August in which we shared a picture of pretty cool Adidas graffiti art from the streets of Copenhagen. Adidas is an innovator and tied into the street cultures ever since (or before) Run DMC sun My Adidas. Their Current Then, Now and Forever campaign does not leave anyone cold and little did we know that the piece we photographed back in CPH was actually part of this campaign.
The passing of Leslie Nielsen was not the only tragedy yesterday as I also found out that the Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner had passed away on 27th of November. Empire Strikes Back is probably the best of the Star Wars films so Mr. Kershner had definitely left behind a legacy of sort. On the note of Star Wars, I thought of posting info on a recent finding I made.
Adidas is one of the brands that has kept its street credibility throughout the years. I mean even if you go back 20 years, the Run DMC was already rapping about My Adidas. The brand has retained the originality and been an integral part of the street-wear culture. No matter whether it’s Hip Hop or sports Adidas is there. Even I’m wearing a pair almost on daily basis.
