During late March/early April 2015, Mark worked closely with Block9 at their London HQ to create the 'graphic-novel-noir' finish and large format artwork files for the centre piece of their Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ inspired set for Lana Del Ray's US tour. The flat set combined forced perspective and considered shading to create a very three dimensional feel whilst cutout window apertures in the buildings reveal a state of the art LED matrix system. The aged comic feel was finished in a greyscale colour range that allowed the additional stage lighting to recolour the set as required to work with additional projections.
The set was built in London and shipped to the US for the tour which included sold out shows at such legendary venues as the Hollywood Bowl.
