Liverpool Cityscape 2008

Liverpool Cityscape 2008This is the most detailed landscape picture ever painted - and it has taken artist Ben Johnson and his team 24,000 hours of painstaking work over three years so far, with another eight weeks to go until it is finished.

Called Liverpool Cityscape 2008, it measures 16ft by 8ft, takes in five square miles of the city from a vantage point 1,500ft above the River Mersey, and is entirely spray-painted.

The team are using 20,000 plastic stencils, a different one for every part of each building, to ensure ultimate accuracy.

Ben, whose studio is in Hammersmith, West London, will take up residency at the city's Walker Art Gallery to finish the Liverpool Cityscape in front of a live audience from January 28 to March 7.

More pictures after the jump.
