Just as advances are being made on an infinitesimally small scale, so too are people pushing the boundaries when it comes to art on a grand scale. Swedish artist David Aberg spent two and a half years and 100 tons of paint to complete his work, “Mother Earth.” He painted the 86,000-square-foot creation by himself inside an aircraft hangar in Angelholm, Sweden.
Artists sometimes work together to create a work of art, as in the case of the 1200 Pakistani students who painted the 42,000 square foot flag of Pakistan
Run out of paint? What about coffee beans? In June 2012, after more than 10 days of work, a 30-metre creation of a woman’s face was unveiled in Moscow’s Gorky Park.
For your own environment, scale can often be a determining factor as to which piece of art you chose. Zatista has a great variety of diverse large -scale works.
Don’t forget that you can also get specific works commissioned and many artists will agree to paint larger or smaller sizes of a chosen piece of art.
Next time you are looking for a painting, consider scale. Put the world in perspective.
