“The need to be creative, the need to kind of explore ideas is a necessity, but to take away that would be to take away everything.” – INSA.
Inspired by our founder, George Ballantine, we believe in celebrating the men and women that stay true and leave an impression on everything they do and everyone they meet. Each Stay True Story captures individuals as they bring their own story to life performing creative and artistic experiments.
In late 2014 they travelled to Rio De Janeiro for the fourth global #StayTrue Story – with globally-renowned ‘GIF-ITI’ artist INSA. With a team of 20 they set out on a uniquely ambitious art project; to create the world’s largest animated GIF. The giant animated artwork – the most ambitious of its kind ever attempted – was painted on the ground in Rio in four stages, over four days, and measured a total of 57,515m2 (made up of four images measuring 14,379m2 each), with all the action captured in this film.
Staying True to his genesis as an artist but with a passion for experimentation and innovation, London based INSA is best known for creating ground-breaking ‘GIF-ITI’: amazing animations of his graffiti designs which culminate in looped GIFs – an innovative and labour-intensive process which requires him to repaint a design by hand many times, with each image changing slightly each time, before combining them to create a final GIF. INSA’s work has been displayed around the world, both at street level and in high profile exhibitions and media, including within London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and Tate Britain.
#CYMATICS :: Nigel Stanford, Music Video
Shahir Daud: “A few years ago I was asked in an online interview what my ideal music video would be. I answered that any video where I could really collaborate with a musician and we could fuse two visions into a cohesive piece would be a dream.
In 2013, Nigel Stanford, a ridiculously talented musician and producer gave me the opportunity to realize that dream.
And now, after over a year of research, production and post-production, I’m pleased to present the music video for “Cymatics” by Nigel Stanford.
Needless to say I’m incredibly proud of this project and am so grateful that Nigel let me be a part of his insane vision for his music.
As we’ve stated before, every experiment is real, and is the product of months of testing and development.”
Thank You Shahir, Nigel and all who make this stunning video real! Awesome job!!!
“We live amidst surfaces, and the true art of life is to skate well on them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
With help from Poler, the boys from The Worble cruised around the Green Mountain State, skating on the many different surfaces the landscape offered.
