If you, like us, are anticipating the debut of Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s book, ‘Where the Wild Things Are,’ then you should definitely check out ‘Where the Wild Robots Are.’ This mural was created at Espeis Outside, a gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Veng and Chirs from artist-collective ‘Robots Will Kill’ were asked to create the mural based on Sendak’s iconic book by the folks at Brooklyn Street Art.

‘Where the Wild Robots Are’ is Veng and Chris’ interpretation of ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ It incorporates well-known imagery from Sendak’s book while also referencing urban art and the playful quality associated with the ‘Robots Will Kill’ collective.
