- Graffiti photography from various artists as a source of inspiration
- the Graffiti Alphabet-Tools supporting the design process
- Graffiti Tutorial
Passion for Graffiti and digital art led me to the idea of introducing those two different worlds as one. I draw and post-process Graffiti using digital tools like Adobe Photoshop, improve them with artificial effects and combine with photography and generative arts. As Graffiti often are the visit card of their creator, the web as media is one of the perfect tools for reaching a wide audience all across the World.
Another reason why I decided for Graffiti digitalization is my professional occupation as a web-designer. Well done Graffiti often beautify unsightly parts of the city and confront people with art while no action from them is needed. I would like to share those thoughts across the web. Most of the Graffiti related websites are implemented in a not appropriate way and missing the main point – spreading the beautiful, therefore I started improving the situation.
Why “Graffiti Empire ” does not focus on spraying?
Sprayed Graffiti will always be a source of inspiration for me. However, Graffiti for me is not necessarily connected to one tool – the can. I like to combine various kinds of art. Like already mentioned above, in my case, I want to mix Graffiti with photography, generative arts and digital effects. The bigger potential reach of my artworks online may be interesting, but is not essential for my approach. I am aiming at developing Graffiti as an art with that approach. At the same time I want to support “spraying” as original technique through making photos of sprayed streetart.
Focus of this project
With “Graffiti Empire” I want to develop Graffiti as an art in the digital world without neglecting spraying as traditional tool of Graffiti.
The “Graffiti Alphabet Tool” is aimed to support you creating Graffiti tags. Furthermore, by showing my own creation process and artworks I want to help you to create your own Graffiti style.
