Hyperlapse graffiti video shows street art at its best (VIDEO)

A warehouse in Brisbane, Australia was scheduled for demolition. But rather than let it go to waste while waiting to be knocked down, graffiti artists Sofles teamed up with spraypaint company Ironlak and videographer Selina Miles to spraypaint the entire building. Captured over an incredible timelapse, artists Sofles, Fintan Magee, Treas, Quench covered the walls in their own brand of art.

More than just a timelapse of a painting, Miles followed the street artists around the building, interacting with them, casting them in short little vignettes, and even flipping the camera upside down for dramatic plays on perspective and motion (check out around 2:40 for some very interesting work).

It's an amazing use of a huge space, one that doubtless required days of planning and shooting to put together. What could have easily been a rather placid timelapse of the graffiti artists doing their thing on a big wall, is instead a dynamic and motion filled hyperlapse, taking full advantage of the warehouse's space.
