Colossal Media was created with the simple belief that artists still matter, that a crew of walldogs painting 60 feet above the sidewalk will always be more interesting than printing onto a piece of plastic. This passion and painstaking attention to detail has earned the trust of today’s most reputable media agencies, brands, artists and cultural organizations. By giving clients a stage from which to tell their stories, we provide compelling reasons to LOOK UP in this age of looking down. Brushstroke by brushstroke, we move forward onto new walls and into new cities, unyielding in our commitment to Always HandPaint.
“Contrary to popular belief, New York's most spectacular art isn't hanging at the Museum of Modern Art or at the Met. It adorns the sides of buildings in some of the city's more interesting neighborhoods, much of it painted by one company; the aptly named Colossal Media.”
“Colossal’s work is a Performance Art.”
“The Jamaica Tourist Board has tapped hand paint advertisement experts, Colossal Media, to put up trompe l'oeil murals around New York City. The realistic paintings really do make passers-by want to jump into the wall and straight into the Caribbean island.”
“Savvy clients who aim to win over hard-to-please, advertising-skeptical urbanites were quickly convinced. Clients are attracted to that handmade quality of colossal’s pieces.”
“Has the elusive British graffiti artist Banksy struck New York again? ... That work was believed to be a collaboration between Banksy and the outdoor advertising company Colossal Media, which put up both murals and had no comment on Banksy's involvement.”
“Walldogs's Painted Ads Resurface In NYC As Urban 'Modern Art' ”

“I find it a pleasure to work with Colossal for the simple fact that they answer the phone and get back to me in a timely manner, unlike other large outdoor companies that I have worked with. Colossal has a very good sense of effective communication.”
