INSA – Abrantes – 180 Creative Camp

Canal180, in partnership with VNA, recently produced a documentary with INSA to document their event in Abrantes, Portugal, earlier in the summer.

During 5 hot days, INSA painted several layers in stages (which were later transformed into a digital GIF as part of his ongoing ‘Gif-iti project), at the historical centre of Abrantes, for the 180 Creative Camp event.
