Spray Paint Paintings
When we hear about spay paint, we mostly imagine graffiti art. But modern artists use aerosol paint or airbrush not only to draw images on the walls — these artworks can be created on small pieces of paper.
The spray paint paintings can be recognized by extremely bright colours that can't be found in the nature. The most common subjects depicted on such works are planets and stars, tropical forests and beaches and sometimes abstract images.
Spray paint technique: when artwork can be made in 20 minutes
Spaypaint artworks can be performed in different art styles, but most commonly this technique can be found at fantasy artworks, sometimes with strong influence of Surrealism. The image can be applied on any non-pored surface (high gloss paper, glass, metal etc.) and no brushes needed to depict it.
All the artist need to create a painting is:
- set of spray paints of different colours;
- palette knife or even a trowel to create shapes of buildings of geometric objects;
- glossy pages to remove top layer of paint;
- cans, bowls or any other round shaped items to create planets by covering part of work and painting over it;
- any other items to create various shapes and textures on the painting: sponges, paper towels, window scrapers etc.
The artists should imagine the total picture from the very beginning and work quickly as paint, applied in several layers, can quickly dry. Sometimes artists don't use any additional stuff and simply use fingers to create shapes. Wearing a respirator while working is a must.
This is a typically urban art style — the pictures often depict metropolises on the background of surrealistic planets, comets or stars. Most of the artists work simply in streets — for example, in New York where artworks can be created within 15 minutes and sold to tourists as souvenirs.
