Not long ago we talked about the Spanish street artist SpY and his ingenious “Moon” installation. So it’s time to give you the latest news on the subject. SpY was invited to take part in the Nuit Blanche event, in the 13th district of Paris where he painted a wall in phosphorescent paint. Reminding us of “The Treachery of Images” (La trahison des images), the “I am not an artist” message is really representative for the event, since it lights up at night, just like the city lights up during the “White Night” artistic happening.
The letters were painted with phosphorescent paint that is replenished throughout the day by the light of the sun as well as by spotlights placed in front of the building. After the lights are fully charged, they shine brightly on their own once night falls. – stated SpY.
