Red Stripe: Street Art at shutter speed

on May 16, 2012 by Tim Comments

Red Stripe’s “Make Art On The Street” released this animation of a special piece of street art. Scottish artist Spaceboy, helped by his graphic students from Edinburgh College of Art, animated his paste-ups on the shop shutters of Newhaven Harbour. It is a nice animation in itself, capturing and recording each frame of the paper installation.

on April 26, 2012 by Martina Comments

Let’s be honest, when you’re walking around the city and someone asks you for a donation, most of the times you don’t not even try to check if you have change in your pockets.
