An incredible new TikTok video sees a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse fan create a Spider-Man graffiti art mural entirely in virtual reality.
A Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse fan uses VR to paint an amazing piece of Spider Man graffiti wall art. Released in 2018, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a hit with critics and audiences, currently holding the highest critics score on Rotten Tomatoes For All Spider Man movie at 97% (although Spider-Man: No Coming Home has a higher audience score). The film, which was written by Phil Lord and Rodney Rothman and directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rothman, won acclaim for its groundbreaking animation style and its introduction of the first-ever Black Spider-Man starring Miles Morales.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse also performed well at the box office, earning over $375 million on a $90 million production budget. It was confirmed in June 2020 that the production of the sequel, Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse, had officially begun, but that the film would be split into two parts, the premiere of which is slated for release in October this year. The first trailer for Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse (Part One) hints that the sequel will see Miles and Gwen retool to further explore the multiverse, expanding on the foundations laid in the first film and continuing to push the boundaries of animation.
In an incredible new TikTok video, artist Gabriel Gault creates a stunning piece of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse-inspired graffiti wall art using only what appears to be an Oculus VR headset. The video shows two simultaneous perspectives, one of what Gabriel sees in VR and another showing the artist working outside of VR. The 54-second video is set to “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee, a song featured in both Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the trailer for the next Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse. Check out the jaw-dropping video below, which was reposted by a fan on Twitter:

The final product, a colorful mural of Miles Morales’ Spider-Man, looks like it was pulled straight from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Like Gabriel’s work, the animation techniques used in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse are revolutionary. The film did not use conventional CGI, but instead saw the animation team debut an all-new look that involved innovative rendering techniques combined with more traditional hand-drawn animation. Gabriel’s technique for the piece, involving the more traditional style of graffiti art mixed with the freedom of virtual reality, resulted in something equally stunning and visually arresting.
The public is still far from being able to see the rest of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but Gabriel’s art serves as a reminder of just how visually distinct and creative the sequel will be. The first trailer for Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse has already shown that the animation team behind the film is once again innovating and striving to give fans never-before-seen visuals. While the sequel is still over six months away, luckily fans have artists like Gabriel to check out in the meantime, who was clearly inspired by the groundbreaking work done in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
