VIDEO: Alex Lehours Recreates Miami On a Rooftop

Picture any popular 1980s Miami cliché you can think of and you’re probably close to the vision Australian illustrator Alex Lehours had in mind with his recent rooftop mural. In between gallery showings and other commercial work, Lehours was commissioned by Sydney-based marketing firm The Defectors to liven up their headquarters. Tasked with creating a piece that reflected the city during the Reagan-era, the designer decided on typical visuals, from architecture to illicit elements. Says Lehours:

“They have this cool rooftop area which they use for social events, everyday lunch, work drinks, parties and client meetings etc. They recently layed down this cool astroturf as well. I decided to go with cliche Miami. So including things like Al Pacino as Scarface, Cadillacs, girls, Art Deco Hotel, Flamingo and of course palm trees. The wall was already pink so I used white black and a teal to compliment it all.”

About the only things left out where sports, crime scene chalk figures and white lines of another kind.
