Renowned Artist Unveils Cityscape Mural at London HQ
Sep 3, 2013
Equipped with paint pens and 84 hours, acclaimed artist Chris Dent created a mural for AOL's London Office on Capper Street. The black-and-white mural was commissioned by the AOL Artists Program – which promotes talented artists across the globe by curating original works of art for AOL worldwide – to be a focal point for our London office's staff and visitors.
The mural captures the urban landscape and AOL's presence around the globe, featuring 15 famous landmarks, including The Shard and Gherkin in London, Eiffel Tower in Paris, Chrysler and Empire State Buildings in New York, Berlin TV Tower and CN Tower in Toronto.
Prior to the Cityscape Mural, Chris designed two cityscape canvases that form part of the AOL Artist canvases, which now includes over 150 pieces of work. Based out of his East London studio, Chris has been featured in American Vogue, Metropolis Magazine and Wallpaper*, and has had solo shows in London and Paris.
