Revisiting Iepe Rubingh’s Painting Reality Series

Revisiting Iepe Rubingh’s Painting Reality Series

You may remember an artist we posted about last year named Iepe Rubingh. The Merry-Prankster/World-Champion Chess Boxer has struck again with his Painting Reality series. This time, the intersection is in São Paulo, Brazil.

The concept behind Painting Reality is to simultaneously dump gallons of varied colorful paint into a busy interestion. Cars, bicycles and pedestrians move through it and spread it as they go about their regular commute. This leaves a visual history of their movement and creates an eye-popping visual to make people smile. The paint is water-based so it comes off easily with water. Here is a video of the São Paulo action released by Iepe over his facebook page. (We think he was quite ballsy returning to the scene for clean-up!)
