Steve Jobs Tribute Painted in Under 6 Minutes

Recently, on 11.11.11 to be exact, I had the opportunity to witness one of the most phenomenal art performances I've ever seen. Aaron Kizer, of Kizer Arts, who does speed painting and amazing street art, created the above tribute painting of Steve Jobs in less than 6 minutes! Most would assume that Kizer practiced for months for such an event, but just a week before the show he was soliciting suggestions on his Facebook Page for whom he should paint and why… needless to say, Steve Jobs was a popular suggestion. He didn't reveal until the end, as you see it all come together, that Steve Jobs was indeed the person he chose to honor in art.

I especially dig the opening Steve Jobs speech excerpt, the music selection (Lights by Ellie Goulding), and the closing (which wasn't captured) that included closing comments by Siri. Enough of the talk, let's get to the video. Watch, listen, and enjoy.
