How does a graffiti artist survive the lockdown? With Virtual Reality graffiti from the quarantine of your own home.
Spanish artist Felipe Pantone has shared virtual reality graffiti videos on his Instagram page, commenting ‘GRAFFITI in times of CORONAVIRUS‘ during covid19 lockdown.
Felipe Pantone’s first VR graffiti video was a ‘PANT1’ tagged onto a virtual brick wall and took the artist 45 minutes to complete.
This was achieved using a VR graffiti simulator called Kingspray KingSpray Graffiti on Oculus.
For the second video, Felipe Pantone stepped it up a gear by painting a virtual white truck in his colourful geometric style…
