A Fast Art for a Fast Society
Spray paint art is an artform using spray paint, traditionally on posterboard, but can be done on any non-pourus material such as wood, metal, glass, ceramic or plastic. It differs from graffiti art in that graffiti is performed on buildings, trains and the like, as opposed to more traditional art surfaces.
The artist will start by creating a mental layout of how they want their picture to go. They need to keep in mind: where objects will go (such as planets, trees, mountains, stars, haze, water, etc.), what colors to use, how fast they need to paint (if it’s hot out, the paint will dry faster so you need to work faster) and finally which tools and methods to use.
