Watch this massive ‘Captain America: Civil War’ mural come together
The mural came together in under 72 hours.
The work of art commemorating the film was created by 10 prominent graffiti artists, who worked at breakneck speeds to turn the project into a reality. Covering two sides of what appears to be a warehouse in Los Angeles, the work of art came together in less than three days.
According to a photographer who worked on the project, the footage released by Marvel was a combination of time-lapse techniques, virtual reality, and live shots.
Many artists involved in the project had previously taken to Instagram to post photos of the work as they were rushing to complete it. A majority of these shots highlight the gargantuan size of the mural, which saw artists riding on scissor lifts as they spray-painted iconic superheroes like Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow.
Spoiler Alert. @Facebook, on behalf of @marvel and @disney asked me to assemble a team of artists, with their own unique powers and abilities, to create an animated mural to promote #captainamericacivilwar . With the deft hand of @thewolfcounsel we assembled @apexer @drastrock @saturnoart @nicholasnak @tewsr @dcypher_dtrcbs @thehext @dytch66 & Plek to paint in 3 weather challenged days one of the finest murals I have ever been part of. Thank you team Facebook for the trust to go where no one has before. @scottdrey @teevazz @jenlou & Tom …. Now just wait for the video *art*ifact directed by @codytesnow to see a murals true superpowers #captainamericagraffitiwar #windsorberg

Expect a slew of selfies at the mural as fans seek to find its exact location. Let’s hope it includes a shawarma place.
