A 6,000-Day Surreal Trip Into 2030

The Grapevine Wall is an evolving illustration on a cube canvas influenced by current events.

For over a decade, artist Craig Tilley has been illustrating a massive canvas of interconnecting artworks (called VINES) that piece together our story in real-time as humankind approaches its final exam.

Each month, two new VINES are completed, adding to the visual puzzle as well as the unfolding story of our survival into the Great Transition.

On New Year's Eve 2030, the final two VINES will connect all 386 VINES that make up the massive infinity cube canvas, ending our exam and revealing the conclusion to our story.
