Speed Painting By JAO JAO ART
JAO, hyperkinetic artist and athlete, paints on a giant easel in the back of her pick up truck. Wearing a helmet and kneepads, she jumps, spins, and hurls herself into the dangerous extreme sport she calls speed painting. Lightening fast Eastern European gypsy music drives her to the outrageous result of two 6’ x 6’ paintings in 3 minutes.5m Minneapolis, MN Performance ART/Multi-mediawww.jaoart.com
