Host: Virgin TrainsClient: Manchester International Festival / ‘Monkey: Journey To The West’
‘Monkey’ film animator and designer Jamie Hewlett (‘Tank Girl’, ‘Gorillaz’) has collaborated with graffiti artist Chu on a one off design for Virgin Trains.
It aims to promote the premier of the new movie at Manchester International Festival and raise awareness of wider festival activities.
The 217-metre Pendolino train has been wrapped with nine set designs, over nine carriages, illustrated with over 90 images from this new production.
The eye-catching carriages will be widely seen as the train races between London and Manchester up to four times a day.
The train will be in operation for one month prior to the June 28 opening of the festival.
