Stencil & Spray Art

Spray paint art is a modern and very colorful art style. Artists bring their ideas to life with a spray can. The artwork of this genre is characterized by brightness, dynamism and liveliness.

What is spray paint art?

Spray paint art is a young art genre that was probably introduced in the 1960s with the proliferation of spray paint. Originally, this material was not intended for making paintings, but for works where large areas were covered with colored enamel. But as you know, art always finds the most unexpected forms and materials.

Spray painting is one of the most important graffiti techniques, using acrylic and permanent markers and some painting tools to create murals and paintings.

Modern spray art has long ceased to exist only on the street — this technique is used to paint large buildings and create small paintings that can be purchased for your private collection.

What material do you use for spray paint art?

Aerosol paint is a mixture of paint and propellant that is stored in a sealed pressurized can and comes out of the aerosol can when the valve button is pressed. The result is a fine, uniform mist that can be easily applied to a variety of surfaces.

The advantages of spray paints include the following:

  • They are applied in a thin layer, dry quickly and are not prone to streaking.
  • Convenience in painting any complexity: they allow you to create complex color gradients and work with products with unusual shapes and hard-to-reach places.
  • The paint in the can is always ready for use; it does not need to be precooked or mixed.
  • Storage of aerosol paints does not require special conditions. The cartridge can be used during the period specified by the manufacturer.
  • The choice of shades and effects is not limited.
  • The resulting layer is very durable, even when applied in a single layer.

Our focus & inspirations

We are pleased to be at the forefront of stencil wall painting. We are open to new experiences and are used to solving even the most challenging tasks. It is the freedom of creativity that inspires us. We are interested in different subjects — believe me, we can express a lot with spray paint art.

What are the different types of spray paint available?

Spray paints differ in their composition and purpose for different surfaces:

  • Acrylic. The most common type is suitable for all surfaces, such as wood, glass, ceramics, plastic, and metal. The paint is water-based with the addition of pigments. This allows mixing to obtain the desired color.
  • Nitrocellulose. Perfect for plastic, metal, glass and wood.
  • Alkyd. Used for painting wood and stone.
  • Epoxy. They are used for repair and restoration work.


The popularity of tape art is growing steadily, not least because it has established itself as a good alternative to various other urban art styles. Artworks made of tape often look more spectacular than, for example, classical graffiti. Tape is also easier to handle and can be removed if necessary. We mainly use very common types of tape which are usually flexible and waterproof at the same time. They can be brought into shape with a few simple handles and are also available in an almost unparalleled variety of colors. Thus, various hue gradations can be implemented. The tapes remain colorfast even after processing. Apart from cutters and a few rolls of tape we usually do not need any other tools for creating our artworks. And it takes relatively little time to do it. We hardly produce any rubbish or waste.

Why art made from tape? Tape art FAQ

No one thinks of becoming a tape artist from the outset. Before we began taping almost all of us (Selfmadecrew members) tried out fine arts with a brush or spray can. Until we finally discovered the right thing for us: rolls of adhesive tape. And we would take to tape like a duck to water! Colorful vs. transparent, matt vs. shiny, wide vs. slim, any variety with its own texture that inspires and fuels all of us. But we don’t allow ourselves to delve too much into theory. By going out to the streets and working there with tape, we receive instant feedback. We get people‘s reactions and emotions right away – something invaluable to us.
