Photo realistic engraved /
halftone image painting
Concept / Process
An image with a father and son sitting together under a tree shows one type of family relationship. Engraving lines effect was applied and the painting was done manually by 4 German and Hong Kong artists.
The project started with Erik Mahnkopf, Philipp Dümcke and Friendly Liu. Before going up to the scaffolding, The team was thinking a lot whether they should paint it by hand or print it on wall sticker and use it like a stencil and paint.
The team decided to test their painting skill and take the challenge. But it took a bit longer than they expected and other projects have to be started, so Philipp swapped to other project and Moritz Friedrich joint. At the end the artists and the client are both happy with the result.
