Ctrl-X, You’re Gone

As part of the Stenograffia street art festival in Russia, artists are “erasing” blight by painting it in the invisible layer pattern from Photoshop. The project, called “Ctrl-X,” delivers an all-over-print pattern, with gray and white squares covering every inch of the target. All gray and white everything.

The artists behind the prank/public art piece are Andrey Kolokolov, Taisia Spirina, Alex-t, Max Parfenov, Dmitry Chabanov, Constantine Rakhmanov, and Anna Klec. For their first attempt, they got permission from the owner of a garage and the car that was “parked” in front of it, then covered everything, including the headlights, tires and undercoating. The artists plan to paint others spots around the area.

To accomplish the piece they used a projector to get the anamorphic squares lined up correctly and then filled it in with paint. For a detailed visual diary of the project, here are 90 photos of the process.

Is “Ctrl-X” better than the pink car in front of 2 Chainz’ trap house? Maybe, that was cool af too.
