The Dying Art of Hand Painted Advertising

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

“Shot high above the streets of New York City, UP THERE reveals the dying craft of large-scale hand painted advertising and the untold story of the painters struggling to keep it alive.

Capturing a trade that is equal parts artistic impression and grueling labour, the film presents a painting tradition pre-dating modern advertising.  A craft that today finds itself dangling precariously on the brink of extinction.”

A touching film celebrating a story of art, craftsmanship and tradition.

The Ritual Project for Stella Artois , directed by Malcolm Murray, music by The Album Leaf.
