“I’m very interested in buildings that adapt to changes in climatic conditions according to the seasons, buildings capable of responding to our physical and psychological needs in the way that clothing does. We don’t turn on the air-conditioning as we walk through the streets in high summer. Instead, we change the character of the clothing by which we are protected.

Spray paint art (also known as Aerosolgrafia or Sadotgrafia by its founders) is a unique form of art that is generally performed on the street creating surreal landscapes of planets, comets, pyramids, cities, nature scenes as well as simple one-colored backgrounds or even multi-colored backgrounds where the paint swirls together or fades from one color to the other through a series of differing values (of each color).

The artist usually paints onto high gloss surfaces, or semi to non-porous surfaces including photo paper, canvas and high quality poster board. This artwork however has and can be done on almost any surface. As such it is possible to find pieces of artwork in this style on anything from glass to skateboards and hoods of cars.

1/ Spray paint
2/ Oil painters pallete knife. Each artist choosing from a variety of shapes and sizes.
3/ Glossy magazine pages - used to remove paint in a random fashion from the canvas creating texture.
4/ Bowls, buckets, lids, cans or other circular objects - used as stencils for creating planets by covering a texture from paint which is applied afterwards to form a background.
5/ Respirator - rated for organic vapors to prevent inhalation of toxic fumes. Paper masks similar to those worn by surgeons are not sufficient and provide very little, if any, protection to the user against the many harmful chemicals in aerosol propelled paint.
6/ Paper towels, (sea) sponges, plastic grocery bags, straight-edge, inside-out tube socks and countless other items can be utilized to manipulate or apply the paint in a variety of ways to create different textures.
