Basically there is a wall with 77 boards and 11 artist work on more than one board at a time. As soon as the viewer likes one of the pics, he hits the red "Take-away"-buzzer, all artists stop working and the viewer picks out his board and pays for it. The board gets numbered, stamped, packed in boxes and handed over to the buyer. The hole in the wall is substituted with an empty white board and the artists continue their work.
It is great to see how flexible the artists are, how they collaborate with each other and how they just continue with the empty parts. So every time you pass the place where they were working on the boards you could see new and different works of art (specially because the artists work with different techniques and styles: spraying, drawing, sticking, painting, stencils, ...).
The red "Take-away"-buzzer:
Two boards were just sold:
The holes in the wall:
This lady used stencils to create her art and she never managed to work for more than 10-15 minutes on a board, because the viewers always grabbed her boards before she could "finish".
My kids (here my son) were fascinated and watched an hour. My son then decided that he wants to spray the wall of his room too.
7 boards sold at once:
The board I bought (by different artists, but mainly by SYLG):
