Diablo III street art at Gamescom 2011

Diablo III street art at Gamescom 2011

In the video below, you can follow the making of a street art by artist Manfred Stader, with Diablo as theme. The reason for the artwork is the presence of Blizzard at Gamescom 2011.

The piece lies in central Cologne (Germany), Hahnentorburg Rudolfplatz to be exact. Some unsuspecting observers may swear that they risk falling into the pits of the Burning Hell if too close to the painting, but the truth is that the technique used by the artist evokes a 3D hell illusion.

What do you think? Personally, I think the choice of illustration could have been better. Others are of the opinion that the release date for Diablo III could have been included in the painting ... And some christians surely loved it! :)
