The UK graffiti artist INSA was recently travelling and creating a series of GIFs by photographing shifting murals, something which has made him gain some notoriety thanks to this technique.
Some time ago he did and interview with Adobe’s Photoshop blog, where he discussed his creative process, inspirations, and the amount of work behind the production of his GIF-iti pieces which are, by the way, meant to be viewed online. He explains the idea as follows:

“I realized I was viewing more paintings online than in real life, the majority of art I was accessing was on the internet. Whether that was street art from around the world, or exhibition openings on blogs, and it disheartened me a little, because although it was great to be able to see so much work, I realized this was never the way the artist would have intended for their work to be seen. So I thought an interesting way to play with this idea was to create art specifically to be viewed online: to the point that you could not actually see it in reality. So, in fact, the internet becomes the best viewing platform for the work.”

The piece above was painted in France, the rest in Bogotá, Colombia, the last one being a collaboration with the “APC” crew composed by TONE, Animal Power Crew and Mysterious Al.
