After more than four years of wait, fans geared up to celebrate the launch of the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018): God of War Ragnarök at 205 BGC, Philippines.
Drumming up the festivities, Philippine artist, Jappy Agoncillo, unveiled a wall mural, to commemorate the launch of this new game as guests were invited to be the first to preview an experiential showcase of God of War Mural Gallery.
Jappy Agoncillo is a Muralist and Illustrator from Manila. His works are an amalgamation of various interests and experiences, resulting in pieces that are heavily layered, rich with vibrant color and detail, and eager to tell a story. He has worked with international fashion, film, technology and lifestyle brands, along with having works in New York, Los Angeles, and Mumbai.
On Jappy’s design inspiration: “The artwork is heavily inspired by the myths that gave rise to not only the recent God of War games but its predecessors as well. Jappy wanted a piece that was packed full of easter eggs and story details, just as rich as the storytelling is from ancient Greek and Norse Mythology. Jappy used the myths as a basis for the elements included, like Jormungandr wrapping itself around the artwork just as the myths suggest it wraps itself around the world, Skoll and Hati teasing the beginning of Ragnarok, the flames of Muspelheim and the ice of Fimbulwinter – a call to how the Norse world began and how it will eventually end. What Jappy wanted for the artwork is not only to showcase the growth and relationship of our main protagonists, but also where they come from, what they’ve been through, and what lies ahead.”
THE MURAL IS NOW OPEN TO PUBLIC till the end of November 2022
This mural will bring together fans across the country to share their passion for God of War through photo opportunities. Fans can check out this mural at 7th Avenue at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) at any time of the day and show their appreciation for Kratos and Atreus until the end of November 2022.
