Profile of Phil Hansen - "Strokes of a Genius" -[Hansen] gives pointillism a modern twist. You might call it "kinetic fragmentism" — pointillism in motion.
For instance, Hansen completed an on-camera piece of paint-dipped karate chops to reveal a portrait of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Preferring to post videos of the process of his work on the internet instead of showing the finished product in galleries, Hansen shows the madness in the method in his amazing art.
