Awesome 3D Street Painting: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Joe & Max is the creative company behind some cool 3D street art paintings you’ve seen right here on My Modern met, like the one they created in Madrid to promote the release of The Dark Knight Rises and the Guinness World Record breaking anamorphic artwork they made in London for Reebok.

Their latest piece “breaks open” the streets at London’s Southbank to reveal those crime-fighting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles playing and crawling their way out of the sewers. A combination of paint and chalk, the unbelievably awesome piece took them about 50 hours to complete.

Made to promote the release of the all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated TV series on Nickelodeon, the artwork drew young and old alike who interacted with it in as slew of creative ways. (Particularly love the young child sitting squarely on Donatello’s head.)

To create each masterpiece, Edlen applies acrylic paint directly onto the record’s vinyl. Stark, black-and-white tones enable each singer’s portrait to dramatically pop from its black background, and delicate, dappled brushstrokes reminiscent of pointillism emphasize the surface’s unique contours.
