We are always love seeing something new from INSA because it means experiencing public art in new and visually and technically creative ways. In addition to a new wall, INSA has launched his first ever app, the GIF-ITI viewer. Nowadays, we consume almost everything online: including art.

Bringing the heat per usual, London based ROID and INSA turned POW! POW! Hawaii out this year by creating this larger than life animation of the wall they painted.

Tediously and skillfully repainting and photographing his walls several times to create his animated GIFS, INSA has perfected the art of moving murals. It’s been a while since we caught up with INSA who has been darting around the globe the last few months painting in Gambia, Miami, Bogota, London, Hong Kong, and even the Vegas desert.

We were all to happy hear from longtime Juxtapoz friend and art legend INSA, who has been traveling the world creating incredible animated GIFs. Capturing these massive murals frame by frame, INSA creates these captivating animations and we just can't get enough of them. Bridging the gap between public art and the Internet seems like an impossible challenge, but INSA is on it. See these GIF's in all their Internet glory after the jump.
