Skirmantas Pipas was born in Vilnius, Lithuania in 1985. He earned his certificate and MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He currently lives and works in Philadelphia.
Organized by Sean Stoops in cooperation with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, Murals Set in Motion is an exhibition of videos and visual art drawn from a recent international movement of “motion painting” projects. The artistic trend examines the concept of street art and murals through animated film, video, “live painting” and installation art. The works in Murals Set in Motion explore the cinematic possibilities of the mural making process and trace the “visual metamorphosis” over time in the creation of animated videos based on large scale, sequential mural art.
The highlighted videos are Cosmic Terrarium and Muralmorphosis—two digital shorts by curator Sean Stoops (in collaboration with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program); Finnstump featuring the mural art of Paul Santoleri; and a range of both local and international artists. Original art and documentary photographs that correlate with the featured video work will also be on display.
No ticket information is available for this event.
