Transforming Art from Japan

This amazing video has been on the internet for a year now and it's already had almost 2 million hits. An incredible 7 days of livepainting by a Japanese crew called RinpaEshiden rolled into a 5 min. video.
Illustration, graphic design, fine art...they can do it all......I was blown away. Watch!

"Led by Noiz-Davi (Yoshiaki Kusunoki) and Daisuke Yamamoto, the group's main activities are performing in live painting events and creating videos of art in action. Instead of focusing on the finished project, we believe the process of creation itself is where art comes to life and our videos aim to engage our audience in that process."
