constantly mutating painting by japanese street artists

Timelapse painting video by a Tokyo art collective, Rinpa Eshidan. The video is titled "1 week of art works" and shows a wall being painted and re-painted over the course of 7 days. It has been viewed over 1 million times since being promoted to the front page of Youtube (following its appearance on Videosift).

Rinpa Eshidan is a group whose members include Daisuke Yamamoto, the director of this video. "Eshidan" is an archaic Japanese word meaning "painters group". "Rinpa" includes the Japanese character for "circle". Yamamoto writes: "rinpa is 'circle' style. it’s a group that values the connections between people. the members are big fans of hip-hop and art. they get together once every two months to perform at clubs."
