    The Guy has Talent, no Doupt about it - he makes it look easy.

    But like that vermont guy with his painting show and the paintings he makes - VERY tacky.

    I`ve seen this guy before in Vegas, he works pretty fast.

    When he sprays black paint across the entire thing I thought "NO! You ruined it!" lol

    Fascinating! I`ve seen these pictures before, in fact I have 2 at home my uncle gave me, he said the artist used paint lids and stuff too. Although I think this artist did his signature a bit big, I dont think anyone could not be fascinated or impressed by that artistic skill!

    The music was funny, "whoop-whoop-whoop whip-whip-whoop-whoop" lol

    At the beginning, I was thinking, "This is gunna be crap." Then when he kept spraypainting over it, I was thinking, "Noooo! WTF are you doing?!" But it looked so great at the end. I kept going, "Ohhhhh! That`s why he did that." Good job, dude.

    It was really cool. But I wouldn`t want one of his paintings unless I got to see him make it - that`s the whole point.
    And did his signature have to be so overwhelmingly large? He took up the whole right hand corner.

    I`m sure the video wasn`t sped up. And despite what I might say next? Those of you going `get a life`? Just STFU and die for us, please. Otherwise lets see -you- do that.

    I like his style, and he makes it fun, to say the least, and good for him for finding his niche in life, seriously!

    Buuut.. (and you all saw this coming, I`m sure!) I have to call his painting cliche. Tacky? Eh, not tacky, just cliche. Multiple moons, funky shapes, vivid colors.. key components to sci-fi, and little more. AND, as others have pointed out, he broke an important rule of art with his signature.. big, too contrasting, draws the eye away from the important part of the painting.

    Lastly.. I didn`t see much choreography going on in his art, not to mention it`s obvious he`ll `repeat` designs.

    But if he`s making money off of it, enjoys it, entertains `and` survives... hell, have at man. They`re still beautiful!

    Some of the video WAS sped up, especially near the beginning. And yes, these artists are in the UK and Spain too, its not a REALLY common thing, but common enough for street traders, its also really talented and cool! And to the person who said "he needs a life"... he makes pieces of art, AND gets money for it, and those pictures will be around for a long time. What have YOU done?

    I`m not even a particularly good painter, and I can paint better than him. It`s not art in the same way that color-by-numbers is not art. You paint by numbers and you end up with something that looks cool, but there is no artistry in it. He`s got about 5 or 6 tricks with circular, square, and straightedged masks and spraypaint, so all his paintings look exactly the same. Rimlights are easy to draw, so everything has a rimlight on it. He can slightly move things around and make lots of sort-of-unique looking paintings, but not really. It would be as hard for him to draw a single human face as it would be for Michael Bay to direct a scene with honest emotion or drama - they`re both the same: all flash, no substance. This guy is the Thomas Kinkade of sci-fi. Kinkade has endless, vapid mountains and warm hearths, and this guy has endless rimlit, randomly textured planets with streaky comets and rings. Blegh. It`s like the Spice Girls of painting.

    Yes, i have seen, better, but i would not say that his paintings are bad, in fact they are quite good. But to say that he needs to get a life or that his strengths on this painting were narrow, are probably the wong way to look at it. If i were him, and i loved painting, and could make money doing it, i would regardless of what other people would have me do to be "Productive" and an excessive use of rimlight in that painting does not nessicarily mean that he does it like that in every painting. Would you say that Van Gough, or Picasso, or Di Vinci, or Michelangelo were bad painters because they painted one picture with favor of a certian technique?

    Pilanus: I would also have no qualms "selling out" the use of my skills. The comparison to a Van Gogh or Picasso is weak, however. Having a distinct style is not the same as having a limited bag of tricks. In any case, for example, Picasso exhibited a wide range of styles (realism in his early works to the cubism he is most famous for; painting and sculpture, etc.), and they all explored and grew in their craft.

    But my main problem with this space planetscape guy is that he is almost the epitome of kitsch: "...kitsch is said to be a gesture imitative of the superficial appearances of art. It is often said that kitsch relies on merely repeating convention and formula, lacking the sense of creativity and originality displayed in genuine art."

    He has no sense of overall structure in his painting, no sense of contrast (everything is cranked up to 11), no sense of color. His work is indistinguishable from any number of album or book cover art.

    "This isn`t that amazing...I had a very uneducated tiny mexcican with one arm missing make it for me as a gift. He did it in half the time and with much more detail. He was the nicestman i`ve met in a long time. I do not give this guy props...in fact he should practice more."

    you`re just jealous that you will never be as good as he is. and i doubt that a little mexican with one arm made a better painting than this man did. if its true, that mexican has got some problems

    you guys also have to remember that this man made the paintning in under 10 minutes. other artists probably spent more than that on most of their pieces

    ^^ does that mean McDonald`s is fine dining? The answer is No.

    I can vomit on a canvas in far less time than this space painting took to get painted, and while it would not look as good, if I ate the right things I could probably make it more interesting.

    Actually i did do something like that. Ricardo the man that made that painting for me has taught me how to do that. I have sold many. And i can make something like that in like 5 minutes. Again, its not that hard and i`m pretty sure even a person with your intelligence would be able to make something like this.

    I`m so glad I`m not the only one who jumped when the painted the huge black mark.

    Art or not, the planets looked really cool.

    DiePSPolice, art is art. Would you argue that any number of Mondrian`s paintings (a series of squares and rectangles) are not art simply because they were seemingly easy to produce? How about dribbling paint specks over a canvas, is that not art? What about making stickmen out of paperclips?

    The level of simplicity or complexity used in the production of art does not define art itself, but rather it is how said art is perceived that defines it.

    Overmann, I think you are reading my argument backwards. I do think Mondrian`s paintings are art. Space painting man is kind of the opposite of Mondrian - his paintings "look cool" but were executed with no creativity or originality.

    Making stickmen out of paperclips; definitely art. Copying your friend`s stickmen: not art. Copying your friend`s stickmen but placing them in an original geometric composition: art. Painting an original spacescape: art. Painting essentially the same spacescape over and over again because every landscape is created by peeling off layers of paint with crumpled up paper: not art. It would be possible to make artistic spacescapes using his methods, but this guy is not, because he doesn`t have any sense of depth, color, contrast, value, or subtlety. He is repeating a bunch of steps.

    Thomas Kinkade`s crap is very bad art, despite its apparent complexity in production and passable realism, because there is no creativity or originality.

    Overmann, as another example, I think the very simple block designs of, say, the Powerpuff Girls or Samurai Jack are art, despite the fact that they are made out of essentially giant solid-colored rectangles and ovals. Do simple shapes with some artistic intent and aptitude and you end up with wildly dynamic shapes and compositions.

    "Painting essentially the same spacescape over and over again because every landscape is created by peeling off layers of paint with crumpled up paper: not art."

    One could attribute this to artistic style, DiePSPolice. I can doodle and draw cartoons, but they all look similar and some of the features are the same. Music artists, it can be argued, also have their own style.

    The methods of creating art play a lesser role in comparison to the finished product. Is a pot made only with one`s hands considered more artistic than a pot made with a potter`s wheel? No. If the artist in this video has to use a paper corner to properly paint the curve of a comet, what difference does it make to the finished product? And so what if the same technique is frequently used by other artists? It`s a specific kind of art with its own techniques, just as I`m sure there exist such techniques in anime and fingerpainting.

    "...this guy... doesn`t have any sense of depth, color, contrast, value, or subtlety."

    Sense of depth? Some objects appear closer to the canvas than others. Color? Space is black as it should be, and the planet`s surface`s color is entirely left up to the artist`s imagination (glad it`s not brown or green, as Earth). Contrast? The brightness of the comet and light of the coronas fade into space. Value? Tell me, how are you making that judgment? And subtlety? One can only be so subtle with 1. fantasy\space and 2. spray paint.

    Wow, a lot of pretentious art majors out there apparently. This guy has created something all these nay-sayers could not duplicate, so what if he does it one time or a hundred times. Spray paint is a very difficult medium to use and I think he uses it immaculately. I don`t care who you are or what your credentials are, coming on to I-A-B and trying to tell the world what art is, is just pathetic.

    Overmann - if you`ve even heard of Mondrian you should know that the mere presence of some darks and lights does not mean one has sense of contrast, and the presence of some color does not mean one has a sense of color. By "value" I mean "brightness", not "worth".

    Skie_Lok: I`n not even an artist, let alone an art major.

    I don`t mean to be elitist - there`s a line between elitist and being passionate about something, and apparently I`m over the line. Sorry. But pick something you really appreciate. You like cars? This guy is the old honda civic tricked out with the v-tec sticker, 5 spoilers, and garish flame paint job. All flash, no style or substance. You like movies? This guy is Michael Bay: lots of frenetically moving things on fire or exploding in slow motion, no substance. You like music? Britney. You like food? Emeril.

    I just google searched spray paint art. There`s way better stuff than this using the same medium.

    I personally found the painting to be beautiful. A bit cliche, yes, but still beautiful. I`m not good at art (except Photoshop, which only counts as digital art.), but for something that took roughly 9 minutes, it was very pretty. Not a masterpiece, by any means, but this sort of thing is still rather neat.

    "if you`ve even heard of Mondrian you should know that the mere presence of some darks and lights does not mean one has sense of contrast..."

    Obviously I`ve heard of the man, otherwise I wouldn`t have brought him up.

    "...and the presence of some color does not mean one has a sense of color."

    I didn`t say that the presence of color means someone has a sense of color. Ever heard of color blindness? What I was implying is that he has enough sense to color objects appropriately. As far as the orange\redness, the color of far off planets is entirely left up to the imagination of the artist. At least he has a common color scheme, no? I`d say that constitutes a sense of color in itself.

    "But pick something you really appreciate."

    Art doesn`t have to be classy in order to qualify as art. It may be cheap and expedient according to the other standards, but who am I to say it is not art? He painted a picture, is that not enough?

It is purple and blue with a bit planet and 2 space stations and the land has the same line effects as on this one. Same signature with 2004 on it. This guy was class and I am glad I got to see him in action again, i still got the picture on my wall ^_^

    "Painting an original spacescape: art. Painting essentially the same spacescape over and over again because every landscape is created by peeling off layers of paint with crumpled up paper: not art."

    Ok, so you say this isn`t art. Fair enough.

    "Copying your friend`s stickmen but placing them in an original geometric composition: art."

    Ah wait, so painting the same ideas in different ways is art. You say all his stuff is essentially the same in technique, so it`s not art. Right. Well if you use the same techniques to build different stickmen and that counts as art, why doesn`t painting different spacescapes with the same techniques count?

    You must enjoy contradicting yourself. While the picture looks amazing, you don`t like him because he does things the easy way. He uses simplicity to make something amazing. And you say that`s not stylish? Yeah, he should make his audience wait around for hours as paints.

    You sir, make an artform out of contradiction.
