More 3D Graffiti, This Time With Rapid Prototyping.

3D graffiti is nothing new. I have a couple of posts from the last year that show off some interesting examples of 3D graffiti work, and current trends leaning in that direction. What I found interesting in Graffiti Technica’s work was that fact that they openly state on their website

“Graffiti Technica is dedicated to the progression of hardcore electronic art and 3D graffiti. The graffiti designs and lettering on this site are completely digital as I want to explore new ways of creating pieces.”

There is a nod to traditional graffiti artists, and a realization that they can push the medium in a whole new direction by forgoing real world materials and working exclusively in a digital space. I know that this is the kind of thinking that gets a lot of people up in arms, and spawns all those arguments about how that isn’t real, it’s fake, it’s a bastardization of the real art form etc. That isn’t the point of this post. I frankly don’t give a rip about how something is created and displayed. If this guy wants to use software to create graffiti, that’s cool. What he is making is unique and really well executed. More importantly, he has discovered rapid prototyping, which allows him to output his 3D graffiti as a real object, and this is where it gets fun Imagine these works as real sculptures, instead of 3D renderings.
