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.
