Sense of Wonder in a Can: The Amazing Beauty of Spraypainted Science Fiction Art

Is there anything more wondrous than art showing interstellar phenomena and dolphins — together? It's like a whole universe of awesome, all in one place. Brandon McConnell's spray-painted art is full of pyramids, galaxies, sunsets, true love and dirt bikes.

Including some paintings he put together in under a minute! Check out some of his amazing images, plus a couple instructional videos, below.

You totally have to love the work of Brandon McConnell, who clearly has a vivid eye as well as a process for creating pyramids and planets in a freakin hurry. Not all of his paintings are speed paintings, but some of the coolest apparently are. He posts his work over at SpacePaintings.com — and has some paintings for sale. Check out some of our favorites below!

Here's one of his best instructional videos via Youtube. Note how he puts together a pyramid with just some folded up magazine pages and a handy spray-can. It's actually pretty amazing to see the process at work.

Here's another one of his total classics, "Stairway to Oblivion." Featuring space cities and a staircase — this one takes a few minutes. And it's freakin sweet! He hasn't posted any videos since January 2009, so hopefully he's still out there doing this.
