Spray Paint-Powered Propulsion Paintings

03.12.12 Marina Galperina

Artist Evan Roth created these Propulsion Paintings in Detroit. They’re fantastic. Watch this spray can with an adjacent American flag, slowly drenching it in black paint. 

So more paintings/kinetic sculptures/video pieces/pin pong ball balance apparati below. As part of his artist residency at the Eastern Michigan University, Evan Roth is also teaching a course called Art and Hacking.

For their first assignment, his class created Propulsion Paintings of their own, with condoms, boats, fiery crashes. See Roth’s Propulsion Paintings at his solo show featuring new work: “Welcome to Detroit,” Evan Roth, Mar 14 – Apr 2, Eastern Michigan University’s University Gallery.
