Two street artists have created history by painting the first ever piece of art inspired by social networking sites including Twitter and Facebook.
Artists’ Pinky and Barney Chum101 took seven hours to complete the wall, which was created in celebration of the iconic Lynx Africa’s 18th birthday. The pair worked directly from recommendations on the social networking sites, using themes of being 18, animals, love and space.
Pinky, one of the graffiti artists who created the wall, said “It’s a reflection of where we are now that artists can create a new piece of work in a day with input from across the world. The art on the wall has been inspired by suggestions from people right across the world. Spread the love.”
David Titman, Lynx Senior Brand Manager, said “Lynx Africa evokes so many memories for people and it’s incredible to see those memories displayed in such a unique manner – on a graffiti wall. The transformation from a blank grey wall to a bright, creative and unique piece of art was a great way to celebrate 18 years of the legendary Lynx Africa”.
I was never a massive Africa fan, more Atlantis, but there’s no denying Lynx Africa’s nostalgic fragrance.
