A 40-meter high graphic mural covers the facade of a 20th-century building in Brooklyn -- the site of a WantedDesign exhibition. The creative activity is a result of the ongoing NYCxDesign Festival in May but will remain a permanent feature of Brooklyn's urban scene thereafter. British Artist Camille Walala decorates the historic structure with, what Dezeen calls, a "colorful Memphis-style graphic." The reason for this can be found in the direct cues her work takes from a location-specific design movement from the 80s that incorporates "trompe l'oeil visual trickery."
The boldly vibrant colors and the geometric shapes capture and hold the attention of passers-by. Camille Walala was commissioned by WantedDesign and her graphic mural breathes a new life to the seven-storey Brooklyn building.
