Apple TV+ celebrates the launch of Prehistoric Planet with spectacular dinosaur artworks
By Staff on Monday, May 22, 2023
Apple TV+ unveiled spectacular dinosaur artworks today that celebrate the iconic dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops and Hatzegopteryx, featured in the second season of “Prehistoric Planet.”
Created by trailblazing natural artist David Popa, the large-scale murals celebrate the incredible natural history of planet earth.
The artworks were informed by the latest science that underpins this award-winning documentary series, showing the most authentic and true-to-life representation of what these incredible animals would have looked like.
The campaign was devised and conceived by creative agency Taylor Herring in association with the MTArt agency.
Popa created a larger-than-life landscape art gallery from purely natural materials, including earth pigments, ground shells, charcoal and local chalk, to bring Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops and Hatzegopteryx to life in vivid detail.
Popa spent over 12 hours expertly crafting the super-size earth murals, incorporating his love of history, anthropology and contemporary art to create distinct visuals created solely with water sourced from the area to create the beautiful works of eco-art.
The global week-long episodic rollout of season two of “Prehistoric Planet” begins today with a new episode premiering each day this week, exclusively available on Apple TV+.
Executive produced by Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, the five-episode docuseries transports viewers back 66 million years, revealing brand-new scientific research and insights into the Late Cretaceous period.
