We had a wonderful opportunity to create a series of artworks for NFS Heat video game. Need for Speed Heat is a racing video game where players race through Palm City. Players can customize their own racing cars and fashion. The game based on Miami’s beautiful city, graffiti and murals in the Wynwood area,
We created over 15 graffiti murals on black canvas that was draped around the exterior walls. We also painted live at the event creating an interesting performance that guests were amazed by. Many guests took selfies in front of the murals and the event turned into an interactive show. Classic vintage cars were stationed behind red rope. Here are a few pictures of the event.
You can check out publications on the game and event here:
The official EA post outlining the new world (aptly titled ‘Under the Hood’) goes into detail about how Miami’s volatile weather served as inspiration when building Palm City: “While we were location-scouting Miami, we saw crazy weather – blazing sunshine then torrential rain then bright sunshine – all in the space of a few minutes. We loved the idea of bringing this to the game, so we built a full dynamic weather system. You get a range of changing conditions as you play, and it was a great excuse to wash the streets down and go big on night neons, wet cars and reflective roads.”
It was a great event and we had a blast working with EA Sports and NFS Heat.
