Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Graffiti Mural In Clerkenwell

January 9, 2012

Arts and Culture, London Sights

If you read the blog regularly, you’ll know that graffiti art is something that I support at the Londoneer. Both the 2010 and 2011 international graffiti festivals organised by End Of The Line have been covered on the site in the past.

Following on from the work that End Of The Line did for Tron: Legacy late in 2010 on the three inset wall panels at the bottom of Great Eastern Street (which, if you know the area, feature a continuously changing gallery of graffiti art throughout the year) they’ve recently got a new commission: do something spectacular to mark the cinema release of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

As you’ll see from the following video they achieved their goal – an amazing 85 square metres of wall covered in hand-sprayed art depicting a scene from the film, on the gable end of a building over in Clerkenwell. The execution looks a bit hairy – although these are only the highlights, artist Jim Vision must have been suspended up there for hours and hours given the size of the finished work! I’ll be popping along to see Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol at the cinema on Sunday of this week so expect a frank review over the weekend, but  in the meantime enjoy the video – Jim Vision is tremendously talented!
