Graffiti bombing is fast becoming a broadly appreciated and legalised art-form in this part of the world; and Graffiti is fast becoming the choice wall art for the new generation of offices. We have seen Andela's awesome wall art, and Konga's beyond amazing Fela wall art as well. If you haven't, please check here.
Two days ago, when we published the 5 companies with the coolest workpaces post, one of the comments on the post was that we should help draw attention to the graffiti decorators. Well we came through!
It came to our notice that VConnect had just joined the graffiti office club with a highly expressive graffiti art painting recently completed at their office space, located in the headquarters building complex of Dufil Prima Foods PLC.
Now to our promise:
Anthony Ezeokoye (a Lagos-based designer / digital artist), also known as Anth-insecta together with his creative team are responsible for graffiti-marking the VConnect CEO’s office. The project was carried out with the hashtag ‘CREATE LIKE CRAZY’.
Anthony Ezeokoye (@anth_insecta) – Concept artist/team lead, along with Chidi Onah (@doskid) – Visual artist, Tochukwu Udegbunam (@u_tbj), Emezie Asogwa – Photography, with a support and logistics team created this wall art.
The wall art is conspicuously positioned to envelope the entire reception area.The graffiti incorporates the newly redesigned logo of VConnect, also designed by Anthony Ezeokoye and Joseph Benson.
The artwork extends across three walls of the recep tion area; 2 opposite glass partition walls (5m x 1.4m and 4.5m x 1.4m) and a central wall (6.6m x 2.6m) which faces the double swing entrance door directly. It forms an almost seamless strip of artwork designed specifically to match the space provided. The central graffiti was hand-illustrated/painted on the initially plain wooden wall with white glossy paint finish, while the graffiti on the glass partition walls were digitally painted, printed on SAV materials and then applied directly on the g
lass wall, making it semi-see-through.
So is your office aspiring to move away from the boring fluorescent bulbs and claustrophobic cubicles to the hip graffiti wall art look? Anth-insecta is one in the long list of decorators that we will help you find.
And yes, We will be taking a tour soon! It's what we do!
