While there are some street artists who are not happy with the fact that their work is being taken from the streets and shared online, Insa has took a completely different approach to this phenomenon. He combined his Photoshop skills and graphic design experience, and came up with an original idea of creating public works designed specifically for viewing online. A few years ago he started creating gif-iti’s, works that are painted and shot in several different layers, which combined result in a smooth animation. After creating these works […]
