BROCKHAMPTON frontman Kevin Abstract isn’t new to the realm of provocative art. Just last week the prolific artist released his long-anticipated ARIZONA baby project to much applause, releasing the album is three EP’s over the course of several weeks. But what’s equally intriguing, and unequivocally in-line with Abstract’s persona, is that he took to YouTube to livestream himself outside of his childhood home in Corpus Christi, Texas walking on a treadmill for 10 hours.
Allowing fans and media to come interact with him, Abstract relished in his performance art, symbolizing empathy and willpower while simultaneously being open to fans coming and taking selfies with him, asking him questions, and more. The BROCKHAMPTON frontman noted that Shia LaBeouf was the main inspiration behind the project, previously livestreaming his art projects as well as continuous exploring various forms of performance art. This isn’t the first time Kevin has livestreamed such an event, and in 2014 he allowed fans to partake in a more intimate viewing on his life and personality, hosting a 24-hour livestream of his desktop that showed fans how he utilized the internet.
