Burberry has tapped British artist, designer and pro-skater Blondey McCoy to create three holiday murals in New York.

The hand-painted pieces, located in the Flatiron and Soho districts of Manhattan, account for the first time that McCoy's artwork has been showcased in New York, all while including his largest artwork to this point.

Highlighting Blondey’s signature blend of eclectic imagery and striking motifs, the exclusive pieces draw inspiration from the dichotomy of modern life and the traditions of the holiday season, furthermore referencing Burberry and British culture.

"Christopher [Bailey] and I have kept in constant contact since our first mural in Clerkenwell, whose short but sweet lifespan only made it more pressing that we work together again," says McCoy. "We decided to do three more, centered around the holiday season in New York, which is quite fitting as my favorite Christmas song is 'Fairytale of New York'.”

"Over the last couple of years I have been collecting antiques and objects, some more sentimental than others, and incorporating these into my works. These new murals are a composition, a curation of some of these objects that sit aside references to Burberry and British culture."

All three of Blondey's Burberry murals will be on display until the end of December.

Earlier this year McCoy debuted his first fashion film, ‘Land of The Livid.’
