Hundreds of paintings, one masterpiece mural
October 29, 2007 9:51 AM   Subscribe

Mural Mosaics! Artists come together to create beautiful themed murals, made of hundreds of relevant paintings.

See the making of Lewis Lavoie's ADAM (youtube), a United Nations mural mosaic consisting of 20 large art pieces, painted live at the Edmonton Capital EX. Or visit the ADAM page for an in-depth look. Check out the other murals, such as Earth's Treasure Chest, where you can click on individual tiles and learn about the contributing artists.

Also, there's a new mural in progress, King of Kings, updated every Monday!

You can be a part of the mural too! Check it.

These strike me as somehow .... creepy? I can't quite figure out why though... even without the religious/military subtext.
