Even if you've never heard of INSA, you've probably seen his work — the British street artist has designed signature collections for everyone from Nike to Kid Robot. But his latest work is a little bit more immortal: INSA's making GIFs.

These aren't your regular, run-of-the-mill animations. INSA's actually developed a method whereby he can transform wall-sized murals in cities into animated gifs that can live forever on the internet. It's simply a matter of painting several different iterations of the same piece, photographing the progress, and then converting them into GIFs on a computer. The result is simply brilliant. He calls it "GIF-iti".

You've never seen street art do this before. [BoingBoing]
