Street painters like the man featured in this video clip get written off by many of us as simple tourist traps, to be avoided on your way to wherever you’re going. Sometimes that might be the case, but in this unnamed artist’s case, it’s not – they way he paints using just his hands and a few paint-soaked rags is almost unbelievable.

The video gives no information regarding his whereabouts (in English, at least). Regardless of wherever he’s sitting, however, this man has achieved international acclaim; a post about him on Facebook has received more than 770,000 likes and 40,000 comments.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: If anyone has any more information about this artist, like his location and/or name, please let us know and we’ll update our post!)
