Yassan’s activities were featured on the global online news site Yahoo! Due to the impact of the worldwide media coverage last month, awareness of Yassan’s activities seems to be spreading to the North American and Israeli media, as GPS art itself has become so pervasive that it is no longer a special expressive activity. However, it seems to be evolving as a new form of message utilizing this expression. We hope that this article will help to spread the culture of drawing giant messages.

Yassan’s artist activities were introduced in SoftBank News, a web magazine by SoftBank Group that introduces interviews with experts and artists as well as small stories useful for daily life under the theme of “IT x Lifestyle”. Yassan’s work was introduced in a brief overview of GPS art and how to create it. Yassan also drew SoftBank’s mascot, Otosan-dog (a white Shiba Inu), in Tokyo. In addition to the social distance of the times, the online marathon that was derived from the social distance has brought about a change in GPS art in the form of a fusion with the group run culture. As a bearer of the culture, I will continue to strive to spread the joy of drawing with GPS. The article is available to Softbank subscribers and non-subscribers alike on our official website.
