Hanksy – Surplus Candy (Video)

Art. Because 450 years ago Michelangelo died. And because: Do I really need an excuse to embed some art here? Don’t think so.

It’s a shame this magical place somwhere in New York will be destroyed pretty soon though…

Hanksy Presents: Surplus Candy from Ricky Shabazz on Vimeo.

Self-proclaimed “street fartist” Hanksy organized an event that saw over 40 artists paint the inside of an East Village brownstone over the course of six days. When completed, it was open to the public but only for a mere two hours. The building itself is scheduled to be demolished. Check out the video above to see how it went down.
