“Chris Burden, who lives and works in Los Angeles, is well known for monumental sculptures and projects such as Urban Light (2008), made from 202 restored antique cast-iron street lamps, which sits at the entrance to LACMA’s campus on Wilshire Blvd. While Urban Light is a single landmark in the center of Los Angeles, Metropolis II represents an entire city, which could be Los Angeles or any 21st-century city. The artist estimates that every hour one hundred thousand cars circulate through Metropolis II, making it much like a miniature Los Angeles” – LACMA
A must see.
I remember when it was just a friend and me in our homes trying to figure out how to reach those brands everyone wants to work with. We were very ambitious and determined to get there. One day the phone rang and there it was; our first opportunity to prove ourselves. We were tasked to do a series of illustrations for Toyota Yaris and the project was a success! It was like that first time you go on a date, do really well, and expect a call for the second one. Well, it did not take too long for the phone to ring again and this time it was for the Toyota Matrix project. The rest is history.
