A towering movie painting for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey now fills a New York City street corner (image embedded above).
One Reddit user posted the massive street painting at this link, generating hundreds of comments. A user named hipporeaper added the geographic coordinates and a map link: “it’s the SE corner of 24th and Park. View from Gmaps”
Tor.com has a post about how these magnificent paintings get created: “315 Park Avenue South is exactly halfway between my apartment and the Tor offices. For nearly two decades I’ve watched an anonymous group of painters create 150 foot movie poster murals on the side of the building. I’ve always wondered how they construct the image and what it might look like from up close while it’s being put together. It’s one of the only places where advertising is still painted — it’s an original work and it changes up about once every six weeks.”
