Out of all artistic styles within our community there is one that stands out of the rest because of its complexity. We refer to wildstyle graffiti, a unique technique that is both difficult to achieve and read.
Artists have special geometric skills. At times, it’s almost impossible to decode the name written on the wall. Moreover, they include 3D shapes, arrows and other elements which increase the level.
These are the 5 most important ideas to learn and improve your artistic performances:
- Use technology in a weekly way,
- Practice on your way to school/work with a blackbook,
- Check abandoned buildings/warehouses,
- Follow the most famous artists in your area on social media,
- Publish your artworks & interact with other fellow graffiti writers,
How to do a wildstyle graffiti?
Creating your own wildstyle graffiti requires time. If it’s the first time you practice with this artistic technique, check your timing. The more you paint, the faster you will perform. Will you try in a wall next time?
There are a few things that any amateur writer should know about the urban art and all the underground community in general. First rule, respect other artists artworks.
Later, you’ll find several ways to practice either at home or open air. These are the 3 key points that any artist should complete within a weekly/ monthly base.
1-. Practice with software on your tablet/Ipad
If you are into technology, then you should be using your screen with a digital pencil. There exist different programs available for Android and IoS, and tons of tutorials in youtube about how to do a wildstyle graffiti.
The most important fact is never giving up, keep on practicing until you reach a master level. It’s true that some people argue about the use of technology in graffiti, but it’s part of it.
For instance, the artists who practice with technology upgrade their services. It’s common to observe professional graffiti artists sending their resumés electronically.
2-. Wildstyle graffiti on a blackbook
It’s the classic way to practice with wildstyle graffiti. You’ll only need good quality markers and a blackbook according to your taste. While some artists prefer them in pocket size, others choose A4.
One of the greatest feelings as an artist is to keep on observing your first drawings, while you’re on the top of the chart. It’ll never make you lose your roots & beginnings.
Likewise, these blackbooks are of a great value when the artists become famous. You can read the paper’s article about Suso33 exhibition in New York city.
3-. Abandoned buildings/warehouses
Last but not least practice belongs to painting in abandoned spots. It’s the safest way to perform your artworks, with no time given…just your skills, the wall and you!
Wildstyle graffiti requires its long sketching times. The most difficult part comes when you last have your design on the mural, ready to be covered with spray paint.
Enjoy every cap’s push, trace your marks properly, create shades and add your tag at the end. Dedicate it and photograph it to share on your social media profiles.
