Artist pays tribute to ‘Pokemon Go’ with mural on 50-foot wall

HUNTINGTON, N.Y., Aug. 26 (UPI) — A New York state artist showed his love of Pokemon Go and positive messages with a massive Pokemon mural peppered with inspirational quotes.

Efren Andaluz, 29, aka Andaluz The Artist, used 150 cans of spray paint over the course of 10 days to plaster all 151 first generation Pokemon on the 50-foot wall outside of his studio in Huntington.

Andaluz posted a time-lapse video to YouTube showing him creating the Pokemon painting, which also includes inspirational messages such as “love your community” and “don’t do drugs.”

“I’ve been waiting to paint the side of the building and wasn’t sure what to do,” Andaluz told Patch. “It was the perfect opportunity.”
