New York New York: Filming New Work from TILT

You might remember running across the artist TILT earlier this year when he and his crew decorated a Marseille hotel room with what we dubbed as a split personality. Now this french artist with such a bold aesthetic is back, markering and spray painting a piece he calls New York New York. The large canvas is covered with a spiral of bubbly hand-drawn typography and painted in hues from deep purple to light pink. The result is deliciously chewy.

Just as captivating as the art piece itself is the accompanying video by Big Addict. It follows TILT on his journey from skateboard to design, cutting canvas to getting an awe inspiring load of paints, and finally to putting those paints to work. The film reveals the masterful steps behind creating such an enviable work and will certainly help any aspiring creative in their process.
