This Monday Sami from Onyx Class joined with Mainstream Year 4 to listen to talk from a Grafitti artist called Dave who works for a company called Graffiti Life. We learnt that Dave set up his business after initially training as a teacher. He started with an easel and canvas in the High Street in Croydon and now has his own company producingt art for companies such as Nike, Adidas, Google, Ebay and Disney. We saw examples of his work, some of which are 3 times the size of a double decker bus!
He then showed us how he produces simple graffiti art using stencils and different coloured spray cans. At the end of the session Sami was able to try this out for himself as you can see from the photos below.
