Graffiti Spray Painting Styles & Techniques

Graffiti Spraying Demo by our Instructor

In this course, you will learn the following:

  • Writers (as graffiti artists are often called) employ their unique lettering styles, color combinations, and intricate designs to establish their individual identities. Techniques such as fading, shadowing, and 3D effects are commonly used to enhance the visual impact of graffiti pieces.

    Spray paint artists use stencils, masking techniques, and a variety of tools to create intricate and detailed compositions on various surfaces.

  • Layering – This technique involves applying multiple layers of color and texture to add depth and dimension to the design. This technique can be achieved with the help of stencils or by painting several layers of paint freehand.

  • Stenciling – This is a popular technique for creating clean and precise designs. Use a cutting tool like a craft knife or laser cutter to make your own stencils, or buy pre-made stencils online or at an art store.

  • Freehand – This is the simplest technique to create graffiti art and involves using spray paint to create designs and letters freehand. This technique can be difficult to master, but allows for a high level of creativity and spontaneity.

Why learn Graffiti Spray Painting? How to start the Graffiti Spray Painting?

  1. Get the right materials: To get started with graffiti, you need some basic materials. These include spray paint, stencils and spraying tools. You will also need a surface to work on, such as a wall or canvas. Be sure to use high-quality materials to get the best results.
    >> VAC provides all materials
  2. Find a legal place for your graffiti art: Graffiti art is often associated with illegal activities, but there are many legal places where you can create your own graffiti art. Look for public places where graffiti art is allowed, such as designated graffiti walls or community art projects. You can also ask property owners for permission to create graffiti art on their property.
    >> VAC provides venue and well ventilated space for spraying
  3. Remember safety: Graffiti can be a dangerous activity if proper safety precautions are not taken. Always wear a mask and work in a well-ventilated area to avoid breathing in the toxic fumes from the spray paint. It is also important to be aware of your surroundings and avoid graffiti in hazardous areas.
    >> VAC provide non-toxic paint .
    . Spray paint – This is perhaps the most important tool you will need for creating graffiti art. Look for high-quality spray paint, which comes in a variety of colors and finishes. Matte spray paint is ideal for a flat, uniform look, while glossy spray paint can add shine and depth to the design.
    Stencils – Using stencils is a great way to create detailed and intricate designs with precision. You can buy pre-made stencils or make your own with a cutting tool like a craft knife or laser cutter.
    Marker – Markers are useful for adding details and contours to your design. Choose markers with different tip sizes to achieve different effects.
    Protective Equipment – Graffiti art can be dirty and potentially dangerous. Therefore, it is important to wear protective equipment such as a respirator, gloves and safety glasses.
    Surface Cleaner – Before you start painting, it’s important to clean the surface of your wall to make sure the paint adheres well. Use a surface cleaner or a solution of water and a mild detergent to remove dirt, grime or debris.
    Tape and newspaper – To protect the surrounding area from spray mist, use tape and newspaper to create a barrier around the wall.
