They say graffiti can inject life into city streets. But what if the graffiti itself were to come alive through animation?
Clever British artist INSA creates moving graffiti GIFs by painting his installations on urban walls, documenting his process and later transforming the still images into animated GIFs. His final products can only truly be enjoyed as hypnotic stop-motion loops online.
The artist creates contemporary art for the Tumblr crowd by combining old school internet techniques with real world artistry. By “mixing retro internet technology and labor intensive painting,” the INSA blog states, “INSA creates slices of infinite un-reality, cutting edge art for the tumblr generation.”
