This video captures a three-way collaborative mural, painted in Miami for the most recent “Art Basel” art fair. Filmed by and created for Black Fly, the artwork was created by graffiti artists Risk and Smash 137. Originally dubbed Can Massacre by Smash due to the fact that cans were brutally cut to make the work, you will see the way in which paint flew freely across the piece to produce a carefree image, inspired by the attitudes of the artists.
