UK street artist INSA is known for his animated Gif-iti wall pieces, but he has upped the scale for his latest project: it required a 14,000 square metre canvas and a pair of satellites to create the world’s largest animated gif.
Each heart alone is 24 metres across, and not being able to step back and see the work in progress meant I had to rely quite a lot on my calculations on scraps of papers. There was months of back and forth discussions, location scouting,” he adds. “The design and planning I did on my own, a logistics team were coordinating the satellite and filming, then my assistant along with a team of 20 people were on site to help get it done.

RONE has gone from spearheading Melbourne’s fledgling stencil art movement in the early 2000s, as a member of the Everfresh crew, to being a celebrated fixture on the international street art scene. An inveterate traveller, his distinctive female muses have followed him around the world, and can be found – in various states of decay – peering out from beneath overpasses and emblazoned on walls everywhere from New York, Paris, Tokyo and London to Christchurch, Santo Domingo and Port Villa.
These days, Rone’s work is found as often in galleries as it is on the streets. His work has been acquisitioned by the National Gallery of Australia, commissioned and shown by galleries including Stolen Space and Zero Cool in London, White Walls in San Francisco and Strychnin in Berlin, and he is represented by Opera Gallery in New York.

Part of an ongoing series of site-specific video installation work, utilizing the latest in projection napping technology.
These massive nappers were projected throughout NYC over the course of several weeks, occurring unannounced, and each lasting only for a few hours. An unsuspecting audience usually emerges at each location, often sparked with intrigue, sometimes enlightenment, and always a whole lot of questions.
Projection Napping is ongoing, and will most likely be continuing to doze off from time to time, throughout NYC and beyond.
“The Orion straluceste in galeria artistilor de street art inca de la prima expozitie oficiala de stencil in Romania. Colaborarile cu branduri notabile si proiecte originale au consolidat un proces continuu de transformare, de evolutie a perspectivei asupra creatiei in street art. The Orion se redescopera pe parcurs, in quest-ul sau de explorare a limitelor galaxiei street art.”
