The Art Of Graffiti


Recommended Posts

I bought one of those self-contained, telescoping rollers, I wanna see if it works well at all.

 

If it does, I'm throwing a few in a plastic-lined backpack.

 

 

Anyone here etch glass?

 

I just started trying it with this carbide tool I brought home from work.

 

I'd like to try some of that liquid etching sh*t though, I could likely get better detail and would probably be quicker.

 

I also saw paint used for frosting glass, I wanna use it on a storefront.

What the hell is etch?

 

I really dont know.

 

 

Edit- I did a logo on my friends shop, It's a candy store. I put the name and some candies, it turned out pretty cool, he offered me $50 for it, and it only took me about 15 minutes.

lol, you ask about etch and then ask what it is...haha...

No, I mean the liquid sh*t.

 

What is it?

 

Like, what does it do? The thing I used just scrapes the glass and roughs it up.

And why do you want to "stomp out with my steel-toe"?

 

sorry for not knowing that glass makes you throw a little fit. sarcasm.gif

In order to rid graffitti off a wall, you wash it, or paint it. With glass, you need to replace the whole thing and it obstructs whatever is on the other side of the glass. I don't know about you, but water or a can of paint is cheaper than a whole piece of glass.

Oh thats what I figured.

 

The only glass I've done is what I've got permission to do, like the candy shoppe. The dude loves it. I was thinking of doing the windows in my room too, like a little border around them.

I didn't read most of the posts, just skimmed through everything and looked at the flicks. Saw some pretty clean bombs. I used to be into graf back in junior high school when I was like 13. Was never too good at throwing bombs but my tags were ill as f*ck. Used to tag under 'Matrix' then 'Drac' a bit later on. I haven't done anything since I was 16. It's a great thing to see graffiti all across the world, even in places that don't use arabic styled letters.

It's not mine, but thats MADR, a very well known artist around my way. He's known for his roller throwups and the locations of where his bombs are. You see some of his sh*t on subway lines, on top of buildings, in the craziest places you can imaging. That shot is on the N subway line right in my neighborhood. I've seen his stuff since I was in elementary school.

The walls in that area are sick.

Aww man, I used to have a bunch of my boys bombs when he moved up to Boston, but I don't have them anymore, and he stopped. When I was taking photography class in high school, I was taking flicks of the pieces on subway lines. Don't know what happeend to the portfolio of all the photographs i took went.

 

If anything, I'd suggest you come to NY yourself, and go to this spot:

it's also featured in this video by Snacky Chan.

 

 

On my drive home from work, I pass by graffiti covered buildings. It blows my mind how some of them even get to those spots.

nah youre right, letters are a bit off..i shoulda posted the sketch, bottom of the S is too wide though it came out alright in proportion. E is well off. middle bar of the Z too fat. With the fill theres actually two different shades of blue for the base colour..tho you cant really see it. Not on my monitor anyway.

Just started writing again, under the name Koro. I'm 14 so theres no way to really get paint atm, so im just tagging and can only use sh*tty markers. Any tips on how to get a good home made marker going?

Man, I'd say painting before tagging. Try get some pieces up and about and use the left overs for tags second.

That's odd, Paint is really easy to get over here, Cheap too.

 

My friends got some Montanna cans for like 10€ Sketch marker for like 2€ and some good Paint Markers for 5€.

 

 

I wanted to pick up tagging, No good ideas though, Can't think of any names. sad.gif

I usually just scribble up some styles.

 

This is a good one i seen up north.

Inner Dublin in Abbey Street is the best place for Pieces, Artists like Milk and Maser tag there.

For me, spray paint is quite easy to get. I go to this paint shop where they sell all these paints and buy spray paint. Simple as sh*t.

In certain places in England you have to be a certain age to purchase paint, fortunately i used to buy it in an art shop in the town center, montana for £3 a can. that was 4 years ago though and i havent touched paint since i was 14.

Sorry for the bump. Wasn't allowed a new topic so umm... Here, what I posted in my topic.

 

My first tag:

I would really like feedback since I want to become better. Mostly on the shaping of the letters since I'd like to get that to be better before I start on shading and color. What I have noticed on the lettering is that the O (it says ORACLE) is a little bit out of the style. I don't exactly know why I made it shaped like that but I guess it just came. I don't really have any other things I can point out myself but that's why you are here, to criticize.

My only problem is the way the letters go towards the end, it looks out of style.

 

Look for graffiti alphabets and use it to help.
