What is Digital Graffiti

We are living in a digital era. The digital medium has slowly taken over all aspects of our life, from transactions, education, marketing, and more. In this article, we will be discussing digital graffiti and how it has evolved over the years. 

Digital graffiti is a new way of showcasing graffiti art using the computer vision system. This art form was first introduced in the year 2008, and over the past decade, it has rapidly evolved and expanded. Any art form that is created on a large scale inspired by traditional graffiti comes under the umbrella of digital graffiti. 

How does digital graffiti work?

Digital graffiti art makes use of particular aerosol cans. Instead of paint, these cans emit infrared radiation that is not visible to the naked eye. This radiation allows the technology behind the graffiti to work. The great advantage of infrared radiation technology is that there is no paint involved, and the hazards of paint smell and fumes are avoided. 

Unlike some other digital art forms, digital graffiti still uses physical elements and practical paint applications. Therefore, this is something of a hybrid technique that bridges both graffiti painting and digital artwork. Both of these art forms are predicted to be major art trends in 2022 and beyond. 

How do you do digital graffiti?

Creating digital graffiti is a work of art. The first step for many artists is to create a sketch or an outline of the design in mind. This sketch can help you make the first draft of your artwork using an online illustrator or photoshop. After that, you can create a 3D effect. 

What is a digital graffiti wall?

Graffiti has always been a medium and a channel for people to express themselves. It allows them to display their thoughts, opinions, and personality without any filter. The digital graffiti wall is a contemporary version of the same traditional graffiti. 

Famous digital graffiti artists

There have been marvelous artworks created in digital graffiti to date, and the method continues to grow in popularity. Numerous artists have been pushing boundaries and have done fantastic work in this field. Some names worth mentioning are Helen Marshall, Jonathan McCabe, Luzena Adams, and many more. 

What is AR graffiti?

Augmented reality graffiti, more commonly known as AR graffiti allows graffiti artists to paint virtually without getting caught. Graffiti artists paint in augmented reality allowing artists to move past graffiti’s old reputation of vandalism. 

AR graffiti is an example of the ever-deepening connection between technology graffiti and art. AR graffiti makes art more accessible through the internet. This builds on the founding belief that graffiti and street art is for the people and should therefore be widely accessible.

The 3D nature of augmented reality graffiti allows artists and taggers to create their artworks on literally anything in a virtual world. Artists are no longer strictly limited to traditional graffiti surfaces.

Is digital graffiti art the same as crypto art?

Digital graffiti and AR graffiti are not the same as crypto art and NFTs. Digital graffiti is a computerized and virtual version of the traditional graffiti art form, while crypto art is a storage and sales method. On the other hand, digital art can be both traditionally sold, or sold through cryptocurrencies. To learn more about crypto art check out our blog post
