Photographers and illustrators collaborate to create virtual graffiti in the streets of cities, as part of Tiger Translate's 'Streets' themed year.
Tiger Beer's Tiger Translate, a global initiative that aims to bring artists from the East and West together, has commissioned 10 photographers and 10 illustrators to work together to splash virtual graffiti throughout cities.
As part of Tiger's 'Streets' themed year, which it explains is designed to "celebrate the energy that infuses the streets of Asian cities and transforms them into urban art galleries," participating photographers first captured a photo of a street in their city. Illustrators then transformed those photographs by creating digital artworks over the original image.
The artwork created has been brought to life in a three-minute animation, too, which you can view here.
Tiger Translate's 'Streets' theme has already been travelling around the world, with exhibitions held in Dubai, Mongolia and more.

"Set against Singapore’s developed landscape, a traditional shophouse stands out with its resilience to defy the changes happening around it. Its facade set against a bustling modern backdrop is a perfect representation of the quickly developing city."

"After checking among the Internet’s infinite wisdom, I found out that the edelweiss is a very popular flower in Mongolia so I added this motif in the artwork."

"A view of one of the few remaining colonial buildings scattered around Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown. Many have become blank canvavses for youth to voice social opinions. In the background, the buildings are towering, pushing forward the redevelopment of the new, cutting-edge Kuala Lumpur."

"This artwork was inspired by many factors such as the ingredients contained in Tiger beer, party lifestyle, music and creativity. This story is about a tiger that jumped into the sea and transformed its blue stripes into many inspirational things and change its surroundings."
