The 365-meter long street painting titled “Rhythms of Youth” was presented to the public for the first time on a lane on the campus of the Nanjing branch of the Communication University of China(CUCN) on Wednesday. The gigantic 3D street painting, or anamorphic painting, covering an area of more than 2,600 square meters, has set two new Guinness World Records as the world’s largest and longest street painting. Its creators led by famous Chinese artist Yang Yongchun were awarded the certificate by the Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking, on Tuesday at a ceremony held in the university.

“It took my team more than 20 days to finish the painting on the ground. Every day, we worked on it from daybreak when we could barely tell the colors apart until it turned too dark to see anything. We’ve devoted all of our time, energy and attention to this painting,” said Yang Yongchun.
