IPAD (PIANO) – MURAL
This iPad mural showcases the musical capabilities and creative inspiration that Apple’s iPad device can deliver. Painted on Adelaide St. near downtown Toronto’s financial district.
254 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, ON
This campaign was to introduce that you can play music on your iPad. There is an iPad and an iPad mini. They are both positioned side by side. Each having the same program/app displayed on the screen, the program being a piano app that creates the sound of piano.
This particular image was very interesting and challenging. The reason being is it has two of the same images except one was smaller. It difficult to paint the same image side by side. The eye has an uncanny ability to see tiny variations. On the plus side the images weren’t extremely detailed or hard to paint. Laying out the mural we projected the image. We will sometime use a construction pencil or spray paint to lay out the initial drawing. For straight line we will use a chalk line, all vertical and horizontal lines will be made with a level to assure it is not crooked.
We employed the use of levels a lot on this particular project. The piano keys are all level and many other line are all straight. There are tiny little pianos in the middle of each screen those were very fun painting we used just about everything to paint those, from stencils to brush to spray paint and even paint markers there was a lot of detail in that very little area.
