Tost Films was at Art Basel this year among many other amazing artists and companies. Luckily for us, the film production company documented artist BIKISMO painting one of the most talked about murals at Wynwood Walls entitled “Chrome Dogg.” Take a look here at some process shots and the the time-lapse video of some mastery at work!
Our main man APER of the VC and TRG crews was in Chicago not too long ago painting a CTA train with a few dudes. In this video presented by MTN Hardcore2, APER uses their Iroko Red colour to create a popping piece for their 2nd episode from the 4th season of their “Versus Project.” Watch the video and see more images after the jump!
Inspired by our founder, George Ballantine, we believe in celebrating the men and women that stay true and leave an impression on everything they do and everyone they meet. Each Stay True Story captures individuals as they bring their own story to life performing creative and artistic experiments.
In late 2014 we travelled to Rio De Janeiro for our fourth global #StayTrue Story – with globally-renowned ‘GIF-ITI’ artist INSA. With a team of 20 we set out on a uniquely ambitious art project; to create the world’s largest animated GIF. The giant animated artwork – the most ambitious of its kind ever attempted – was painted on the ground in Rio in four stages, over four days, and measured a total of 57,515m2 (made up of four images measuring 14,379m2 each), with all the action captured in our film.
Staying True to his genesis as an artist but with a passion for experimentation and innovation, London based INSA is best known for creating ground-breaking ‘GIF-ITI’: amazing animations of his graffiti designs which culminate in looped GIFs – an innovative and labour-intensive process which requires him to repaint a design by hand many times, with each image changing slightly each time, before combining them to create a final GIF. INSA’s work has been displayed around the world, both at street level and in high profile exhibitions and media, including within London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and Tate Britain.
Independent production company Sofarida Pictures starts off 2015 with a video of French graffiti artist Horfée. In this video the notorious street artist is in action doing a rooftop in Paris from a few years ago. This clip comes from the dvd Beats&Drips2 and music by Waswhite. Watch the science after the jump!
Our main man 2TOES from New Zealand recently came out with a new video painting a solid piece near the Harbour in Auckland. Easily one of the funkiest writers we know, check the man’s science after the jump!
In this video from last year featuring The Mexican Fetus Cats Collective, shows infamous New Zealand graffiti artist BERST1 teaching some students how to use spray cans and then hit the walls. The group of artists travelled to a number of different walls to create brilliant and colourful community murals.
