COlabs partnered with lebasse projects + pollution studios to source the perfect urban canvas upon which to display a massive installation by portuguese visual artist AKACORLEONE. incidentally, the chosen property was the same historic west adams location which played host to hanksy's legendary one night only 'surplus candy : LA' showcase in october of 2015.
the entire week-long mural production process was filmed as part of a commercial project for perrier. visual elements were reproduced digitally by the artist for use on a national billboard campaign. this colorful creation drew on the talent of pedro campiche, better known as AKACORLEONE. though he hails from lisbon, pedro's monumental murals + multi-layered sculptures can be admired from thailand to switzerland. known for his dexterity in using colors, typography, characters and forms, he blends these elements to achieve eye-catching compositions imbued with originality + an all-pervasive humor.
