Rainbow Installation is Where Acid Trips Meet 'My Little Pony'

New York based German artist Markus Linnenbrink has a mission: to paint colorful stripes all over the world. He recently turned a museum wing in Nuremberg, Germany, into a psychedelic tunnel of intense and vibrant color, one that seemingly goes on forever. He did the same for a visitor's hallway in a prison in Düsseldorf, Germany, the lobby of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and the elevator banks of a New York office building. The installation in the Kunsthalle Nürnberg, which sees stripes painted on the floors, ceilings, and walls, was perhaps Linnenbrink's most compelling and disorienting striped artwork to date. Unfortunately, the exhibition is now closed, though it's only a matter of time before Linnenbrink has his way with another space. In the meantime, check out more photos below.
