Behind Artist MEAR ONE’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” MuralJuxtapoz // Thursday, 24 May 2012
Last week we told you about the Snow White and the Huntsman pop-up gallery that opened its doors on May 19. Those who have already been down to 7710 Melrose Avenue in L.A. have seen the work of a number of hugely talented artists, including 3-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. The gallery centerpiece, however, is a mural from legendary graffiti artist MEAR ONE. Drawing inspiration from the film, MEAR painted his moonlit forest scene on a 12-ft mirror (no easy task). You can see his process, and hear him talking about the challenges this piece presented, in the video above.
The pop-up gallery runs weekends through June 3, and the movie, which stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron, will open on June 1. For more information on the film and event, and to check out the latest trailer, visit www.snowwhiteandthehuntsman.com.
