Edinburgh artist Spaceboy animates a 150 metre-long mural along fishmarket shutters
Edinburgh artist Mike Inglis, aka Spaceboy, has collaborated with Red Stripe on transforming the shutters of Newhaven fishmarket into a Jamaica-inspired animation.
The first cut of the video can be seen below.
Spaceboy pasted his illustrations onto the shutters then – with the help of award-winning production company Blac Ionica and graphic arts students from Edinburgh College of Art – brought his work to life through stop motion animation.
Inglis says: 'It's a tribute to the 1970s DIY recording scene … essentially it's based on positivity and the Jamaican culture that Red Stripe originated from. I hope the people of Edinburgh will come down to see the illustrations as well as checking out the video.'
The artwork is part of the 'Make with a Red Stripe®' creative marketing campaign.
