The Propulsion Paintings by Evan Roth utilized the spray paint cans as a medium to express the culture of graffiti artists.

Each piece represents Roth's previous project in which he created performance art with spray paint cans. Roth accomplished this by making each can into art in its own respect through unconventional use such as having the cans inflate prophylactics. These can constructions were intriguing as performance pieces, and continue to catch the eye as free-standing sculptures.

The message portrayed is one that gives attention to the artistic culture behind graffiti, as it forces spectators to look at the item that makes the art itself. Though graffiti has become an integral part of urbane life, and most city dwellers are exposed to work daily, Roth's pieces draw attention to the process behind the scenes.
