The art of....well, art!
Because I do not have much artistic talent, I'm always impressed by those who seem to come by it so naturally.
Whether it is a watercolor painting, a metal sculpture or even graffiti on a building, I'm amazed how some people have this God-given gift which was why this fellow caught my attention on Times Square.
At first glance, it appears he is just spraying a blank canvas wildly with different colors of spray paint. But then he takes a straight edge and begins scraping lines into the paint revealing the canvas below.
This action combined with adding layers of more spray paint result in a piece of art that is quite incredible.
To add to my amazement, he completed this painting in under 15 minutes!
