british artist INSA — likely best known for his ‘gif-iti’ series previously featured by designboom — has taken his distinct, layered street art style to the exterior of a vintage bentley, painting multiple variations of a spiraling design onto the surface, and finally transforming the photographed still images into a motion animation.

 

blue and red paint streams from the front to the back of the car in the gif version, comprising intricately composed, hand-painted layers instantly re-worked on top of the last in succession, building up the two colors and free-flowing geometries into a vibrant, dynamic and three-dimensional display. the undoubtedly mesmerizing moving images mark a union between the physical world and the digital one, as these final graphics painted into the car body can actually only be visualized properly on screen.

  • Would have been a lot better if they masked off the areas that weren’t animating.
