5-Story Donkey Kong Mural in New Hampshire Is a Creative Masterpiece
When the owners of a building in Concord, New Hampshire realized that an elevator shaft on the back of their building looked a lot like the classic arcade game, Donkey Kong, they decided to go all out and transform it into the legendary video game.
Manny Ramirez, the Creative Director/Co-Founder at Positive Street Art was asked by the owners of the building at 5 South State Street in Concord, to paint a mural of the Donkey Kong arcade game on the wall.
"The mural idea came from the owners of the building," Ramirez told us. "They were inspired by the architecture of the elevator shaft and the beams zigzagging similar to the platforms in the original Donkey Kong game. They reached out to us to do the mural and we were thrilled."
It took two weeks and a lot of paint to transform the elevator shaft into Donkey Kong, but the finished product looks spectacular.
"This was a one-off piece for us unless someone else wants us to paint another Nintendo piece for them," Ramirez tells us. "Although the pics inspired one of our artists to put together some DK paintings on canvas that will be showcased at our Holliday Art Fair on November 19 at our new headquarters in Nashua."
The process of painting this amazing piece of artwork is fascinating to see. Chris Boncoddo of Positive Street Art documented it with lots of photos that they have shared with us. Take a look at how they did it.
