Futura Live Painting

Kelly Griffin | Tuesday, January 17, 2012




One of our favourite graffiti and contemporary artists Futura currently has a show on in Paris at Galerie Jérôme de Noirmont, which includes 15 new works.

The theme of the show is 'expansion' and the work explores abstraction and spontaneity.

Check out this video below of Futura working his magic.

David Choe Paints The Facebook HQ

Kelly Griffin | Wednesday, January 11, 2012


 

Last week we showed you this video of David Choe and DVS1 collaborating for Nuart 11. This week we want to share with you these videos of David painting the office walls of Mark Zuckerberg's new digs.






 




Apparently David and Zuckerberg go way back... Choe was commissioned to paint the Facebook offices way back when the social networking site was just starting out - almost seven years ago.


I wonder if David would do our office walls too...
