6,000 HAIR CLIPS used to create Messi mural

Argentina, Buenos Aires
May 30, 2018 at 07:33 GMT -00:00 · Published

A Buenos Aires artist has used 6,000 hair clips to create a mural of Argentina football legend Lionel Messi, as seen in the capital on Tuesday.

The visual artist behind the project, Letali Linetzky, explained how the mural was made.

"First, I made a sketch that took me about two weeks," she said.

"From that sketch came a production programme for brooches, which were 6,000 brooches in different colours, in 24 colours, which I placed in a tensioned network, and placing them took me three days," she added.

Messi, who hit a hat-trick in Argentina's 4-0 victory over Haiti on Tuesday, is due to represent his country at this summer's World Cup in Russia.

El artista detrás del proyecto, Letali Linetzky, explicó cómo hizo el mural.

Según sus palabras, le llevó dos semanas realizar el boceto antes de ponerse a trabajar en el mural.

A partir de ese boceto, se encargaron 6.000 broches de pelo en diferentes colores, concretamente en 24 tonos diferentes, que colocó en una red durante tres días para lograr reproducir la cara del astro argentino.

Messi, quien logró marcar un 'hat-trick' en la victoria de Argentina por 4-0 sobre Haití del martes, defenderá la camiseta de su país en la Copa del Mundo de este verano en Rusia.
