Street Artist Creates Stunning ‘Purple Rain’ Mural as Tribute to Prince

Nearly a week after the world lost one of it’s greatest musicians, tributes to Prince and his music have flooded in from around the world from both fans, friends and fellow celebrities and one such tribute that deserves your attention is this stunning mural painted by Australian artist Graham Hoete.

Set on a purple background the huge black and white portrait of Prince covers an entire building facade and cleverly makes reference to one of the singers greatest hits, ‘Purple Rain’ thanks to the small addition of rain droplets. Overall it’s an amazing and fitting tribute to the talented musician. You can see more of Hoete’s work on his Facebook page.

Here’s a timelapse video of Hoete painting the mural:
