I can’t post up any pictures of my recent work as it’s all for my show next month, so here is what I was upto this time last year in Kazakhstan for Almaty mural festival .Thanks to @moldira.bekzhan for inviting me.. QZ was the old Latin abbreviation for the country before the more recent Russian KZ was used. #fanakapan#Kazakhstan July 2017 #noprojectorcrew

Not long now. -HELIOS- ( the Greek god of the sun) 150 years since helium was discovered coming from within the sun!
A balloon/helium based art show. My newest work plus some special guests to be confirmed... at @5thbasegallery, just off of brick lane .from the 17th August ( private view Thursday the 16th) running until the 22nd of August . Sponsored by @molotowheadquarters@greatart_uk@trappedinzoneone - beer sponsor to be confirmed.. flyer designed by the graphic master @envol.studio#fanakapan#helios#london
Reposting this from back in Feb . The augmented reality work from @__jask__ will feature in a few areas of my show in August.
I’m looking forward to seeing what else he comes up with.
This one is anaglyphic ( 3d specs) and augmented. Will be able to view the pieces through your phone with snapchat I believe. Mental 3d skills #jask#fanakapan#helios from 16th August at @5thbasegallery London.
I’m not going to post up all the work from my upcoming show but a number of people are asking me what sort of thing I’ll be painting....
Mostly character pieces and less letter pieces...Lighthearted nonsense as much as possible. Plus a few 3d pieces and a print release #5stars#patrickstar#fanakapan#helios solo show from 16th August at @5thbasegallery London . Celebrating 150 years since the discovery of helium and a good excuse to have a few beers on brick lane #transparentballoongraff
One of the most interesting parts of the process is receiving the huge tiff file of the canvas. I love looking at the technique with the file blown up to make a 5 like this come alive on canvas like @fanakapan can - unreal technique can not wait to print #fanakapan#HIGH #5 #graffitiprints

Fanakapan, well known for his 3-D eye popping balloon art, including our very own Downtown Eau Gallie piece! LOVE this one! #fanakapan
fanakapan duck. Favourite graffiti artist - the glass-like effect is mindblowing! Off Brick Lane. The full version called Follow the Leader is a few scrolls down on @fanakapan 's Instagram feed. Bit sad!
First 4 in the debrand/ rebrand series. . Either adding details / branding to clear or removing the details and branding from chrome balloons and adding back as a transparent layer . I’m working on a fair bit I can’t post up online for a while. #debrandrebrand#clearballoongraff#fanakapan#london
Finished the last bit of detail on this one. The last letter piece for a while. Soon to be a diptych print release with @graffitiprints . Next up- prep for @roskildefestival in Denmark and a few new character based pieces for my solo show in August. More info soon . #fanakapan#high5
