Spray Paint Sci-Fi

Am I the only one who thinks this is cool? It's even cooler when you're standing in Harvard Square, sipping on a lemonade and watching these "worlds" being created right before your eyes. There's no dramatic Lincoln Park-esque soundtrack but if you really want music I guess you could blast your iPod until people give your dirty looks for being rude.

This is very cool. My parents got a very similar picture to this in Mexico years ago. Same deal: spray painted art.

I wonder if this guy started his career tagging freeway underpasses.

Nope - that's damn cool, SQT. :-)

Pretty fun.. Plus, if you're not wearing the mask, you'll get high off the fumes.. :P

What's really cool is that this kid found what he wanted to do, plopped down on the grass and did it.

LOL Angela.

There's one of those spray painter guys in Harvard Square, but I don't think he wore a mask though. :0

They have a whole gallery of Sci-Fi spray paint artists at www.spacepaintings.com. It's wicked cool.

I love that stuff!

Google video has another excellent example of spray paint art. This one is done by an Eastern European dude, and it's just amazing what he can create in fifteen minutes (the video is cut down to like half that time)!

I always wanted to be a painter, but I chose to pursue a more stable career by going for a phd in ancient history. *snicker*

Oh, and if you're wondering why no sarcastic comments today, I've been drinking. I become, umm... I think they call it "nice" when I drink.

Despicable trait, niceness. They should make a vaccine to prevent it spreading.

You sound exactly opposite two of my brothers when they drink. One brother is a happy drunk (nice like you) but the other two decide they like to fight when they're inebriated. We used to end up with a lot of holes in the walls whenever they would have a party. I tried to avoid my brother's parties whenever possible.

I love how all the layers come together to form the finished picture. Have you seen the lady who does sand art? I'll see if I can find a link for you later.

I only get ornery if I drink with ex-girlfriends. They think it's cute to give me hell.
