There are many grafitti time lapse videos on youtube and google where they show graffiti artists tagging on a single surface. Those are amazing.
Time lapse animates the process a tag or painting goes through before and after completion. This video is done by a crew of graffiti artists (called Rinpa) that use time lapse video techniques to show the progression of their graffiti on all walls of a room but also adding sculptural and installation art elements incorporating clay, paper, and furniture.
It is aesthetically beautiful and deserves more credit than its mere 1638 views so far.
I love watching the process before completion. The process itself is something many artists hide from the viewer, and allow the viewer to imagine the process for themselves. Imagine Wassily Kandinsky showing you the steps to paint Composition VIII. The process itself becomes part of the art.

I like seeing the tree out in the forest at the end. It looks real striking.
