WeWorkBryantPark

Bordering New York's Bryant Park is one of WeWork's most iconic locations. The WeWork Bryant Park building is a very small, 11 story building with intimate floor plates and historic details. I worked with WeWork interior designer, Cindi Leung, to create the art and graphic program for the building. A normal project is filled with custom wallpapers and neon signs, however, this project allowed for a large mural that wrapped the historic staircase. The project was not originally planned for and demanded a weekend of no sleep and all night illustration in order to hit a Monday morning deadline.

I researched the history of the building and learned that before the current structure, which was built by The Republican Party Club of New York in 1902, a wooden church sat at this location. The building changed hands between the Overseas Press Club and a rehab center before WeWork took possession. 

This mural is in the exact place where there was once a large mural painted by Lumen Martin Winter, artist and designer of the Apollo 13 astronaut patch. I made sure to pay homage to his work in both my illustrations and cropped New York Times articles explaining his large scale artwork.

The piece was painted by Overall Murals.
