VIDEO: Barry McGee’s Brooklyn Mural

We’ve got a thing for Beautiful Losers here at Mass Appeal, and by that we mean we love to see our favorite artists with street art roots go on to do great things. Barry McGee is a perfect example of this. For their Art In The Streets program Cadillac, in conjunction with Vanity Fair, commissioned McGee to paint a huge top-to-bottom mural on the side of the Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn, New York near the historic Brooklyn Academy of Music. The video above documents his process in a time-lapse video interspersed with some art world luminaries waxing poetic about McGee’s phenomenal talent.

Check out the video above and marvel at how McGee’s  gone from bombing freights and tagging to painting his myriad aliases on a huge building for all the world to see.
