Street Artists Around the World Use the Microsoft Surface to Design Murals

Like us on Facebook

For a global art project called Designed on Surface, Microsoft partnered with street artists around the world to design original pieces using Microsoft Surface tablets—and to paint those designs on walls in 17 cities across 12 countries.

The murals were created over the course of five weeks and were each made to embody the Microsoft theme "Do great things." The dedicated Surface Art website features bios, photos of the murals in progress, and video profiles of some of the artists involved with Designed on Surface.

In his profile video (above), Jasper Wong, artist and co-founder of the non-profit art organization POW! WOW!, talks about the intersection of technology and art and how his mural came together in Long Beach, California. Check out a few of the other murals painted for the project below, and head to Microsoft's Surface Art site for more.
