The other night, my boy Mikey put me on to photographer, tattoo artist, and Buddhist NYU Graduate Bruno Levy. A fascinating, nomadic character with some very dope art to his credit. Enjoy these two videos displaying his talents, one involving the development of a crazy new video projection technology, the other involving creepy masks.
31st Century graffiti below, nightmares and light trails after the break.

“Shortly after receiving a BFA in photography at New York University in 2001, Bruno Levy co-founded and managed SQUARESQUARE, a media company specializing in live video, design and motion graphics. Apple and Wired magazine both recognized SQUARESQUARE as a pioneer in video scratching. In 2003, Bruno started to work as a travel photographer, capturing everything from the Dalai Lama (in portraits) to underwater battles between hammerhead sharks and dolphins in the Marquesas, French Polynesia. In 2006, his travels led him to Nepal, where he spent his time practicing Buddhism in a monastery, working in a tattoo shop, and running a restaurant that he opened. In 2009, he returned to NYC. He is now directing and shooting music videos, painting and is creating a new multimedia performance group “SWEATSHOPPE”.
Bruno Levy’s clients include corporations (Sprite, Panasonic), magazines (Wired, XLR8R) and musicians (Ndea Davenport of the Brand New Heavies, RZA of the Wu Tang Clan and The Walkmen). His works have been exhibited by, among others, the Guggenheim, the SFMOMA, the MCA in Chicago, the Bronx Museum, the Jumbotron in Times Square, 111 minna, the San Jose Museum of Art, and the Rubin Museum of Himalayan Arts.”
