Hyperlapse Shows One of the Best Graffiti Artists in the World at Work

Many of the time-lapses and hyperlapses we run across follow natural events (like a massive rotating supercell) or capture the hustle and bustle of a city in a unique light. The video above does neither. Instead, photographer and videographer Selina Miles shot it while following one of the world’s best graffiti artists around an abandoned warehouse as he tags it to kingdom come.

The artist’s name is Sofles, and to say he’s talented with a spray can would be a dramatic understatement. He got into graffiti writing all the way back in 2000, and was immediately hooked. He wanted to do more tagging and get better fast, and so he would go out as often as 3 times per week with other big names in the graffiti game like Seiko and Blends.

The video above is a perfect example of where all that work got him. And if the graffiti doesn’t impress you, the video itself should. Put together from a mix of static time-lapse and moving hyperlapse shots, it makes full creative use of the medium. At one point, Sofles even ‘tears himself in two’ (synchronized, of course, with the drop) and creates two tags simultaneously.

Here are a few of the creations he puts together over the course of the video:

To see more from Sofles or check out more of Miles impressive work behind the camera, head over to their websites here and here, respectively.
