Vevo’s 10-Year Anniversary Party

VEVO, the world’s leading video and music platform, celebrated its 10 year anniversary with a special live event in New York City this month. Five sets, representing their popular videos, were recreated; videos were projected on these at the party.

YVStudio was hired by The 4×8 Workshop and Lauren Nikrooz to paint two of the sets: Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus.

Along with Pompei Studios, we faux-painted crumbling walls for Vevo’s most-watched music video, Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”. This video featuring Daddy Yankee has been viewed 6.4 billion times since its release in early 2017.

The other set was faux-painting concrete block walls for Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball video.
