This Glorious Explosion of Color Is Paint as You've Never Seen It Before
Sherwin-Williams Created Surreal Campaign by Filming Paint in Tanks of Water
Mar 12, 2015
McKinney's first work for Sherwin-Williams' premium performance paint, Emerald, is not only a gloriously surreal explosion of color inspired by fine art, it was created using an artistic process in itself.
Production company Pysop injected paint into water in 400-gallon tanks, then filmed it with a seamless camera that moved through the tanks. The pieces were then stitched together in post production. Pysop says it was inspired by artists including Mark Rothko and Georgia O'Keeffe.
Another spot, Color Chips, continues the fun color-swatch theme we've seen in previous ads.
