Alien Mural

In East London, no one can hear you scream! When I first came across this Alien art by EndOfTheLine, a UK-based "creative collective", I thought it was commissioned by Fox. It looks that good. Indeed, it is just some street art, but it's an amazing mural anyway. "Jim was getting itchy trigger finger," they state on their blog. "We set him a challenge to paint all four panels on Great Eastern St in one day, no backup, no support just a big bag of paint and a handful of caps, Basing the production on one of our favourite film franchises, Alien, by Ridley Scott and HR Geiger, visionaries both." The results are fantastic, as seen in photos below.

"The epic Alien production proved that the Samurai Painting style (No Thinking Just Movement) and offshoot of the Shaolin Shadow painting School can cover large areas with style and grace without getting caught up in indecision and monotony. This confident application of paint shuns the status quo of run of the mill photo-realism and adopts ultimate fun as its core principle." More on the project at the EndOfTheLine official website. Whether or not this has anything to do with Prometheus, it's just awesome, amazing street art that really brightens darkens up that wall. Maybe Fox should hire these guys for another mural in June!

  • Dope. I spent a few weekends sleeping on Jim's floor, mostly very drunk. These are actually some of the best paintings I've seen him do.

    Fantastic work.  Really wish I could see them "up close and personal", but this is truly impressive.  
  • ... so beautiful. Giger (and Cameron) would be proud.

    Proof that something monstrous, such as the alien can be beautiful. Splendid work.
