A while ago we we’re invited to paint on a huge truck. This truck had to be painted on a family festival somewhere in Holland. The theme of the festival was oldschool videogames.
We painted a lot of cars before but never a huge truck, so we didn’t have to think long about this oppurtunity and agreed to come over. We thought about the idea of doing something with oldschool videogames and thought Space Invaders would be a nice theme to work with. The truck had to be painted in one day, so we asked out crewmember sperm if he was down with us to do the background. This way we could easily paint this concept within one day.
After preparing the concept and selecting a wide range of cans for the background we we’re eager to paint the truck and left early. When we arrived at the festival we had to walk pretty far and then we finally arrived at the spot where we would paint the truck…. This was definately not what we expected! We we’re flabbergasted by seeing the surface where we had to paint on. It was on some cheap plastic which was mounted very loosely on a truck. We took our stuff and left in a hurry and searched for a wall in the neighnourhood where we could paint the concept on.
We knew a place nearby and painted the concept there. It still came out fresh we think, but it would look even nicer on a truck… Well sometimes things don’t go as you plan but you have to make the best out of it.
