Animated street art — or “GIF-iti,” as it’s being called — involves painting a mural, photographing it, altering it, photographing it again and so on until it’s made into a loopable clip, or GIF. Two artists, INSA and MADSTEEZ, created what they call the world’s largest example of “GIF-iti” on an apartment building in Taipei, Taiwan.

The looped clip was created with four frames and the mural was altered three times to create the trippy effect. The video below shows gives view of the process.
