From sketch to wall

Graffiti has been around for many years and applied using a huge variety of methods. A favoured tool is the aerosol can, which can be clumsy in the hands of an inexperienced 'Toy' (a person who is not well versed in the techniques of graffiti). Put one in the hands of a professional muralist, though, and the most amazing artwork can be created.

Modifications to the tools of graffiti have allowed a new generation of artists to add more detail, more colour and more substance to the traditional art form. Whether you're writing your name on buildings, creating wildstyle letters or painting detailed characters, you will be judged on your line quality, use of colour, shape and form and the freshness of your piece.
