Lost Space: Public Art by Mike Hewson

July 23, 2012

Mike Hewson, a New Zealand based artist, created a fantastic public art installation on the sides of buildings in the town of Christchurch that had been destroyed in an earthquake in 2011. What makes the project so special is Hewson's use of 3D style and photoreal works that make the buildings appear as if they are alive and operating as they were before. Hewson's work appears on buildings slated for demolition, which gives the structures one last tribute before they are re-built. The project is titled Homage to the Lost Spaces. (via)
