Graffiti, Printmaking, and Stencil ArtPrintmaking-the art or technique of making prints,esp. as practiced in engraving,etching,drypoint, woodcut or serigraphy. Graffiti- markings, as initials, slogans, or drawings, written, spray-painted, or sketched on a sidewalk, wall of a building or public restroom. Stencil Graffiti- makes use of a paper, cardboard, or other media to create an image or text that is easily reproduceable.The desired design is cut out of the selected medium and then the image is transferred to a surface through the use of spray paint or roll-on paint.What all three of these Artistic Media have in common:-Made to be viewed by the public or mass quantities of people. - Each process is promoting a certain message for the viewer. -The idea behind each of these processes is to be reproduced and seen as much as possible.The Printing Press (with moveable/replaceable type) was invented in 1436 by Johanne Gutenberg, in order to mass produce the Bible for everyone. Over the centuries artists began using printmaking to mass produce their own work through a variety of printingprocesses.Block printingEtchingLithographyScreen printingGraffiti History in a nutshell…Graffiti (as an underground art form) is said to have started in Philadelphia in the mid to late 1960’s, and moved to New York City around the same time.
