RVMP: The Mural Team
There is no doubt that there are some insanely creative and talented people here at Blue Sky. Which is why it makes sense that many of our artists collaborate on projects outside the studio.
RVMP (Robert, Vincent, Mike, Peter) is one of these collaborative groups who recently started working on a couple of mural projects together. By weekday these guys are Blue Sky concept artists, by night they are notable street artists. Team RVMP all reside in New York City, and are a tight knit group that work incredibly well together. Vincent and Pete are even brothers!
“Collaborating on murals is new for us, but we have worked with each other on films for many years and when we are not working on films, we are always spending time together looking at, making or talking about art," says Robert, one of the artists of RVMP.
Over the summer the guys were invited to create a couple of murals. The first was at 135 Grand Street, Brooklyn, NY. After they completed their first mural, the owner invited them to paint on a bigger and higher profile project, giving them 100% creative control to make what they wanted. This was located at 60 N. 6th, where famous street artists like Shepard Fairey, Faile and Swamp Donkey have showcased their work in the past. When it came to developing a design for the mural, which displayed geometric background shapes mixed with their own personal styles, Robert said:
“The design process is very democratic. There is a process of making a strong composition first and then after we have established that hierarchy, each artist is given the freedom to make a piece of the wall their own. We have distinct styles and encourage each other to work in our own respective style. We do a lot of preliminary planning before we get to the site, because working at a big scale in the elements, requires us to work quickly and efficiently.”
It is no surprise to us how incredible RMVP’s Murals came out! To see more photos and a time-lapse video of the 6th street mural in progress check out this article. You can also follow along with RVMP’s latest group and personal projects on their website.
