Dels starts in black and white in the video for Trumpalump by Us Design Studio - with only the slightest of clues that things are not quite as they seem. But then it becomes clear that Us created Dels in black and white entirely in-camera.

This is the second distinctive video for the London hip-hop artist (who invites comparisons with Big Dada stablemate Roots Manuva) by Us following their excellent video for Shapeshifter.

But unlike that post-heavy effort, this was all about the shoot, which required a great deal of planning, and plenty of paint. Watch the making of here.
