Hummm. That just seems to impossible. Sure it's not CGIed?
No it's real. That guy is awesome, and a

Be a gentleman. It is charming and infuriating, respectively, to exactly the people you want it to be.

Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

Seen his stuff before, it's insane

I've actually been to an exhibition of his work at the Parish Gallery in DC. It is amazing... mind blowing stuff. He carves out of kevlar and nylon, dries and grinds up oil paints to get his pigments. Oh, and there is a harley he carved out of a tiny fleck of gold as part of the display.
The artistic centres of my mind having recovered to the point where they're capable of comments more cogent than "meekle. . . ." I have to ask, does anyone know what he uses as a medium?

One of his mediums is a tiny scalpel he carved from a tiny shred of tungsten. He claims he can allow tiny vibrations in his heartbeat to 'jackhammer' etch grains of sand. His brush is a hair off a house fly.
First let me say that this guy is simply amazing. Second, the more description of his technique I read, the more it sounds like the punchline to one of those Chuck Norris jokes. In a good way.
