Artist 5: Fanakapan
“His hyper-realistic inflatable lettering stands out by its metallic shading and reflective highlights, producing perfect optical illusions.”
Johanna’s final choice is Fanakapan,
“Creating depth can be a one of the trickiest steps when working with spray-cans. Fanakapan has proved himself a master of the technique by designing 3D balloon-shaped words and creatures that will literally blow your mind.”

Highly popular both nationally and overseas, Fanakapan now also exhibits in galleries and demonstrated some interesting experiments on stained glass during his last show ‘Inflation’ at BSMT Space (London).
