Metropolis: A Giant New Window Drawing by Strook

December 17, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Risking life and limb atop a tall scaffold, Belgian street artist Strook (who you might remember from his mossy pressure-washed street art) just completed this impressive drawing titled Metropolis inspired by Fritz Lang’s 1927 film by the same name. The drawing was done entirely with white marker inside the Concertgebouw (concert building) in Bruges, Belgium but because of the changing light patterns during the day the piece looks as if was done in black when viewed opposite a light source. Watch the video to see the entire piece come together.
