Brad Downey & Akay Paint Bombs

Spontaneous sculpture artist Brad Downey and Akay (tenderly named Brakay) again visited the lovely Italian city of Grottaglie! For Fame Festival 2012, both artists created an explosive paint installation consisting of several paint bombs, colorizing an abandoned house…

Not sure how they initialized the detonations, but it looks like they did not use electricity to do that. Maybe it’s some kind of yeast or something like that. If anyone has a clue, please write a comment – I’d love to have some details!

  1. Nice idea…
    the mechanism called *Dry ice bomb*
    You put a piece of Dry ice and some liquide,
    in this case paint,
    in a sealable bottle…
