The workshop will begin with an introduction on how to use spray cans. You will then have a chance to practice straight lines and simple shapes. I will then show you how to structure the letters, some traditional graffiti techniques to fill them in, and how to do the 3D and shadow. I will then be on hand with more guidance whilst you start to create your masterpiece on the wall! Finally, I will show you how to sign your work.
I am a Brazilian mixed media artist. I started in the grafitti world in the mid 90’s in São Paulo, and I’ve been developing my letters and characters since then. In 2002 I moved to London where I studied for a Degree in Graphic Design. I then moved back to São Paulo where I undertook commissions, took part in exhibitions, events and live painting. I’ve been taking graffiti workshops for the past 10 years, both privately and through a gallery. I love sharing my passion with people who are new to the graffiti scene.
The workshop will take place in Leake Street Arches near Waterloo. This is a legal graffiti area, and there is always amazing grafitti there for you to have a look at and be inspired by.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, including absolute beginners. I believe everyone can paint and I’m experienced in guiding people at the beginning of their artistic journey.
Comfortable clothes. The arches are outside, so wrap up warm if it’s cold.
