The comments on YouTube are about how much they would pay for this, but all I can think is that it's practically a seminar for how to make such art yourself. Hot off of MuseCon, howzabout linking up to some especially cool instructional videos?

Cool paining.. I have once run into someone doing this in NYC, but its close to 10 years ago now... I think they were asking about $25-$35 then.

Just as with music, it's the SKILL and practice which allows one to create art. Anyone can spray a spraycan, just as anyone can press a keyboard. Playing it, that's another matter.

And my hat's off to this guy. He's clearly been doing it for ages to have such speed and control.

I saw people doing this in Las Vegas and immediately went home and begged for spray paint to try it myself. (I was under 18 at the time and spray paint wasn't sold to minors.) This stuff looks so easy but it's deceptively hard to spray on just enough paint (not so much or sprayed so close to the paper that it gets blotchy) and work with it quickly enough that it's still wet enough to ragroll or scrape off. I also ruined a lot of clothes - I have mad respect for street artists who have gotten good enough at aiming their spray paint (and compensating for the odd gust of wind) so that they don't do what I did and get more paint on their clothes than on the paper.

I have a cool one that I bought from a street artist in Aruba, probably 8 or 10 years ago. He was great... it was fascinating to watch the process in person!

Amazing and a half and then some! I love seeing artists at work.

I know this is a few days old, but at Musecon I attended their lyric writing classes and wrote a 3 verse song and chorus. I remember reading you the first verse but I don't recall if I told you the rest of the song.
