Painter Creates Cosmic Paintings in Minutes

Artist Brandon McConnell creates some pretty stupendous outer space images with a few cans of spray paint, some pages ripped from a magazine, a blow torch and a handful of other tools you’d find at a local hardware store. The finished paintings are reminiscent of the covers of sci-fi paperbacks from the 1950. Nice stuff, and with a little bit of practice you could probably do the same.

    “god” spray paints and blow torches then….

    Y’know …. shaking a spray paint can in an intensely masturbatory fashion, and then “spraying” the results in an artistically beautiful & coherent way is actually not inconsistent with most creation mythology.

      Nailed it.
