The Department of Awesome Anamorphic Artwork is thrilled to report that the Guinness World Records for the World’s Largest and Longest Street Paintings were both broken on June 11, 2014 in Nanjing, China. Entitled Rhythms of Youth, the spectacular painting measures 365 meters (1,198 feet) long and covers an area of 2,500 square meters (26,910 square feet). It was created on the campus of the Communication University of China (CUCN) by a team of artists led by Chinese artist Yang Yongchun.
“It took my team more than 20 days to finish the painting on the ground,” he said. “Every day, we worked on it from daybreak when we could barely tell the colors apart until it was too dark to see anything. We’ve devoted all of our time, energy and attention to this painting.”
Rhythms of Youth was created to celebrate the upcoming 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will be held in Nanjing this August.
