Graffiti by Spent1

June 27, Thursday
Kolokotroni 9,

Welcome to the workshop dedicated to graffiti! Introduced by a contemporary Greek graffiti artist and creative designer, Spent1, this workshop will combine theory with practice. Spent1 will take you from the origins of ancient graffiti in Pompeii to its development in modernity and our times!
You will learn about the key graffiti artists, such as Cornbread, TAKI 183, Lady Pink, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Banksy; and find out more about graffiti connection to hip-hop culture, politics and social movements.
You will then be able to create your own graffiti piece on a tote bag, following the instruction of Spent1. He will introduce various graffiti styles (tags, throw-ups, pieces) for inspiration and give you some tips on graffiti techniques, such as outlining, filling, shading and adding highlights.
Then using fabric markers, fabric spray paints, stencils and other decorative items, you will transfer your design onto the tote bag.
This workshop is all about experimentation and creative freedom!
