After creating a piece in the United States, Spidertag recently stopped in Finland to participate in the Upeart Festival. The Madrid street artist spent 5 days working on a brand new mural with neon cables with an assistant and locals on the streets of Iisalmi.
Entitled “Interactive Neon Mural #6”, this nocturnal piece measuring 14 × 12 meters (45 × 39 feet) unveils an exquisite figure and gives off vivid colorful light after dark. Regarding the new mural, Spidertag says the following:
“N6 is the first time that people will be able to interact with the mural using a downloadable app—in addition to the remote control, as usual—to make a picture using a QR code located on the wall. Its a powerful and colorful mural, around 300 meters of neon tubes. I think it creates a kind of happiness with all the colors together and also the design connects with the Finnish minimalism. I hope this wall will be a landmark of the joy of colors during the long and grey winters…”
