NORWALK - A man is halfway through a 24-hour painting marathon Saturday afternoon.

The artist, who calls himself "5IVEFINGAZ," started painting canvasses inside Studio Space in Norwalk at midnight and will continue until 12 a.m. Sunday.

He says he is raising money to dig wells in Tanzania for drinking water.

"I go from style to style and just randomness with music, so most people don't see this process. It's because I'm so secretive with it," he says.

The artist's goal is to raise $6,500 for the well-digging project.
