How to paint a planet in 20x20 seconds
BY GEORGE DATSERIS
@ VOL 7
ON MAY 09, 2017
When George Datseris started Spray Paint Art, he was immediately hooked by the simplicity of it and how quickly you could get good looking results. In a few months of self-practice, he got better and was soon even asked to display his artwork.
A few years and art exhibitions later, he decided to teach people about the art himself and hand over his excitement for the craft. To show how easy it can actually be, he decided to take the crisp format of PechaKucha to turn it into a tutorial on how to get started being creative with the spray cans and paint a planet - in less than 20x20 seconds!
