With the rise of street art and graffiti in popular culture, spray painting has taken the center stage. Believe it or not, spray painting is one of the oldest painting techniques. Researchers have discovered that some images on the cave walls of Lascaux, France, were applied by blowing a saliva and pigment solution through a small tube.
Although today’s spray paint comes in a can, the technique is essentially the same as it was thousands of years ago. Working with spray painting is an experience like no other and those who’d prefer to avoid the hassle and mess of painting with the hand will see a good alternative in spray painting.
Bobby Foust, a California-based artist uses spray paint to create some of the most beautiful pieces of art. He was unable to discover an art form that seemed to perfectly click with him until he tried his hand at spray painting in December 2015. Bobby has been painting for over a year and a half now and says that he couldn’t be happier with his progress.
He fell in love with this art and has decided to share his progress both through the sale of his pieces and by posting videos with a view to inspire others to try this art form. Feel free to check out his works on YouTube and Instagram.
