Who doesn’t love graffiti art when it’s not on their building? A good can of paint isn’t just for bringing life to a concrete wall or to somebody’s nerves — it’s also the perfect medium for expressing artistic notions through vivid colourations and swift, inspired gestures. I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in graffiti and stencil art on the side of my designer schemes, because there’s nothing like that gratifying sense of separation bridged by the push of a button and the motion of an arm to achieve something unexpected. I especially love the vibrancy, coverage and longevity of Montana Spray Paint, which even comes in various spray nozzles to suit your desired coverage application. I always feel like a kid in a candy store when I’m at Curry’s Art Store on Queen Street West in Toronto, where they’ve got two full walls of colours and a product setup that I would love to have at my home. I hope you like the artwork below!
This sticker book is a collection of iconic illustrations from the street art movement brought to you by graffiti artists from around the world. I came about this hidden gem when doing intensive research for alternatives to all the poorly-drawn and silly baby stickers placed in the most random places around my house. Like most toddlers, my son is a big fan of stickers and loves to tag everything in our house from appliances and furniture to walls, and of course, my face. Being an artist myself, I figured if he wants to tag stickers let’s make it official and give it some visual appeal. Sticker Bomb is a journey through the creative arts and craft of mix media art and even inspired my son to make some unique artwork of his own. In the meantime, I’ve stolen a few stickers out of his book until I get my own copy. For interested parents, you may want to do a quick browse through the sticker book before handing it off to your kids as you might end up with some PG-13-inspired artwork on your living room wall.
