Here’s a version of Megatron that Optimus Prime would allow to flourish. Hasbro and Mighty Jaxx’s latest team-up with toy designer Quiccs is a 9.5″ x 11″ x 7″ vinyl bust that sees the Decepticon leader brandishing two silver spray paint cans.
Kingspray is an upcoming game made to be played with the HTC Vive that will let you be a graffiti artist with all the conveniences of digital art and minus the law-breaking part.
The game is still in development, but as you’ll see in the trailer below it’s already very promising even in its current state.
Do you love space? I mean, really love space? Then live in it and paint a space scene on your floor like this guy did. This just might be the coolest graffiti art installation I have seen in a long time.
Graffiti can be cool, at least when its done with artful purpose. With robots all over the place, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to make a robot that drew graffiti. The original Senseless Drawing Bot was great, but this one is even better.
I always loved playing with my Spirograph when I was a little kid. Of course, now with tablet and computer painting apps, it’s hard to imagine going back to such a simple creative plaything. But sometimes, simplicity is fun too.
Some people like graffiti, some people hate it. Any artform that puts droids on the streets is fine by me. No matter how you feel about graffiti, you have to love this secret door that is hidden within a graffiti R2-D2.
We’re always talking about stuff made out of LEGO around here, and while I’ve even seen furniture and vehicles made from LEGO bricks, I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve seen a load-bearing bridge that uses LEGO.
I’ve always had this appreciation for graffiti art. Notice that I’ve inserted the word “art” after “graffiti,” because I’m not talking about random scribbles or names that have been spray-painted haphazardly on walls. I’m talking about, you know, graffiti that was drawn or painted on as art.
If there’s one thing that I’ve never been able to do, it’s to create freehand drawings with a can of paint. Luckily, others can do wonders with these cans, as is evidenced by the these excellent Star Wars graffiti creations found around the globe by Smosh.
Graffiti artists of the future might not need to run their own late-night missions to tag their target locations thanks to this new technology. GML (Graffiti Markup Language) provides a method to store and describe graffiti as digital information which can then be played back and reproduced later.
Elevators have become a common fixture in urban environments. People don’t really acknowledge them anymore; we just pass through them to get somewhere else. Kind of like the Midwest. I’m kidding. But anyone who goes to advertising company Dubois meets Frogger‘s Antwerp office will definitely take note of the building’s warehouse elevator.
It’s not only Internet/text shorthand, with its LOLs and OMGs, that’s everywhere; it seems lots of tech-based and inspired memes are creeping out into the world at large, including in graffiti and other urban art forms.
No, Mario isn’t going on an exotic vacation from the Mushroom Kingdom. Instead, his likeness is making the rounds of the art circuit thanks to these most excellent stencil paintings by street artist BilliKid.
Recently sighted in South Beach, Miami, the stencils feature a dayglo backdrop and a bold graphic treatment of Mario that makes him really pop.
