“Where the Wild Robots Are” – A New Mural by Robots Will Kill.
BrooklynStreetArt.com curates the Espeis Outside gallery space with Brooklyn street art favorites Veng and Chris from the collective Robots Will Kill (RWK).
Veng and Chris worked two days this week to complete the brand new piece in which they pay tribute to the childrens book Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak, published in 1963. It’s a concept they have wanted to paint for a while and their selected scene is a composite of both their painting styles and a few of the scenes in the book. Together they bring the viewer in touch with the power of imagination.
In the original story, the main protagonist, Max, is banished to his room by his mom for acting out around the house and basically being a little punk. While hanging out in his room he begins to imagine a slew of monsters and a jungle and eventually he escapes into a place where he has power over everything and everyone and becomes the King of All Wild Things. Veng and Chris have depicted many characters of their own on the street in the last few years and decided to create some new ones to play the roles here. Vengs photo-realistic boy looks at peace afloat in this parti-colored boat as he sails toward a cluster of Chris’s big comic-book bright monsters. Inspired by the whimsical nature of escapism playtime for kids and the untamed imagination that they have, RWK let their own imagination run wild.
