Shok-1 was recently invited to Paris by his artist friend Franck Duvall. During his visit, the pioneer of aerosol X-ray art painted a new mural titled Dark Magic.

The clever idea is completed by mixing two different techniques which accent his unique style. The hands are drawn using brush and ink, creating clean lines and a sharp image, while the x-ray part is done using his […]
