ANCHOR:
And a British artist took creativity to the next level, literally. He and his team are creating art in thin air well above the ground. Here's more on the story.

STORY:
British artist Nasser Azam took to the sky on Tuesday to create two large triptychs at zero gravity for his latest project, "Life in Space".

He lead a team of five artists into a specially modified Russian aircraft, IL-76 as they flew to 23,000 feet the air.
The artist said he wanted to make art inspired by weightlessness.

Azam recently quit his day job as Chief Operating Officer at Merrill Lynch and is now the Artist-in-Residence at London's County Hall.

He and his team of artists underwent intensive space training for the project.

Azam - whose spacesuit was designed by Alexander McQueen - says he was inspired by Norweigian artist Edvard Much and British painter Francis Bacon.
