YVStudio was hired by Marc Barold of Strangeways to paint the centerpiece for the legendary Full Moon Fest.
In its 8th year, Full Moon is one of New York’s largest independent festivals, celebrating music, art, leisure, and NYC’s “restless spirit.” It is inspired by the epic Full Moon Party that goes down in Thailand every year.
Marc built a staircase inspired by Mayan ruins, topped with a Full Moon headstone.
The materials were foam, which was carved and then coated with hardcoat.
YVStudio painted the prop to resemble old moss-covered stone.
Taking over The Knockdown Center in Queens for 2018, Full Moon Fest spotlighted a diverse lineup of performers, including Metronomy, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, GE-OLOGY, and Jackmaster across three stages.
