Artists Craig Redman and Karl Maier, also known as Craig & Karl
, have covered an entire street with a multicolored 14000 square feet candy corridor, in the Chinese city of Chengdu. The impressive artwork was created with a long grid composed by small square spaces that were then filled with 13 tons of candy in many different colors by more than 2000 volunteers that helped to create the final design.
The flowers are a symbol of good luck and the pandas that spread along the corridor have a strong connection with the west region of Chengdu, the natural habitat of giant pandas. The event actually celebrates the first anniversary of the Panda Tour, promoted by the China Conservation & Research Centre.

, the massive street installation also intends to bring awareness to Chinese rural children that currently live in poverty and all the candy will be donated to those in need, along with cash support by the IFS.
