Street art is so prevalent these days, people are finding other ways to make the already striking art form even more striking; enter Luminous by iNO, a graffiti artist originally from Greece. It is a video created by Helen and Constantino Mass that captures the artist using a special spray paint that essentially glows in the dark.

In reality, the spray paint used in Luminous by iNO absorbs ultraviolet light, creating a stunning fluorescent effect that makes the artworks truly jump out at the viewer. In a way, it is a permanent form of light graffiti. People might have even mistaken the work for that effervescent form at the beginning. The glowing artwork ends up depicting a large scale gas mask. It is set to a Diplodocus mix.
