Best Graffiti Painting Books

Post by: adminbc 7:04 AM Thu, March 21st 2013

Graffiti or Graffito(singular) is derived from the Italian word Graffito which means ‘scratched’. The basic meaning behind the word is to signify works of art which are produced by scratching or painting something on to a surface. Another related word or term which is not commonly known is ‘sgraffito’. This involves the art process of scratching out a particular piece of art to reveal something which is underneath it. A primary example of this pottery in which potters would glaze paint their wares and then scratch a design on it.

Historically, the word Graffiti was used to denote the inscriptions or paintings which were found in temples or ruins, or specifically the Catacombs of Rome or that of Pompeii. In a modern context, the word has been amended to include the creation of any painting which is done on surfaces to constitute vandalism.

Some of the driving forces in modern day graffiti painting include many famous people all over the world. One such man is Marc Ecko, who is an urban clothing designer. He advocates graffiti and states, ‘Graffiti is without question the most powerful art form movement in historyand has been a driving inspiration throughout my career.’

One of the greatest example of graffiti painting artists is the group 123Klan. It was founded in 1989 by Scien and Klor as a graffiti group but of late, they have turned towards the practice of illustration and design. They have produced and designed illustrations for many companies and firms like Nike, Sony, Stussy, Lamborghini, Adidas and Coca-Cola.
