Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra recently completed a five-story mural honoring legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan in downtown Minneapolis and the entire process has been captured in two videos.

The mural, titled “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” features three images of Dylan at different points in his career.

The kaleidoscope $50,000 portrait of Dylan was commissioned by the building’s owner Goldman Sachs, to help revitalize the Cultural District, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Kobra was selected for the piece due to "his vibrant style and international renown," the report said.

The project was completed Sept. 8.

Two videos captured Kobra and his team of five artists complete the 60-foot tall piece, working 12 hours a day for two weeks. One video shows the process from the Spong PR office down the street.

In a second video, Minneapolis photographer Bill Hickney filmed the project by using time-lapse cameras and a drone.

Dylan, whose given name was Robert Allen Zimmerman, was born and raised in Minnesota.
