40 Innovations in Digital Graffiti

From Light Painting to Virtual Tagging

— June 12, 2011 — Art & Design
Street art used to be a form of expression between urban youth, a visual marker of one's turf or a tribute piece to a fallen friend; these innovations in digital graffiti, however, show how far this form of art has progressed. Street artists such as Banksy attained the level of respect typically accorded of fine artists, and his work is collected and sold around the world for hefty sums.

The advancement of technology and computer-based art has enabled digital graffiti to flourish even further. Today's artists can virtually tag surfaces or create illusory photos through light painting or light graffiti. Some apps and games even allow prospective street artists to create digital art without sullying the walls and surfaces of their neighborhood.
