Herokid in association with MTN World brings us the latest chapter in the Concrete Walls Project featuring catalan graffit writer and illustrator Sawe.
In the video above, Sawe paints walls and trains with an illustrated and animated overlay. From funny cartoon like faces, to slinky arms and humorous coordinated movements, Sawe and Herokid blend together hard core graffiti bombing footage and a style of animation that is reminiscent of an early disney movie, but on acid. The combination is quite original and entertaining. It’s nice to see a match of personality and the quality control in the graffiti Sawe paints and the animated video to go with it. I bet other writers will like follow suit. Enjoy.
* Born In Barcelona, this Catalan writer studied illustration and carries on working in this field. Since 2001, when he picked up his first rattle can, he has yet to cease proliferating. Through investigations in plastic arts, a new world has opened up to his work and without forgetting the truest roots of graffiti, he melds the two like alchemy. Composition emerges from his imagination often after spending countless hours standing between a blank wall and his own subconscious. 1950’s era American comics, publicity mascots, or aleatory mutations began as simple influences and have grown into the pillars of his repertoire.
As a sampler, Sawe absorbes, transformes, adaptes and always surprises.
