G raffiti is much more than painting a wall. Personalize and give a unique character to your walls by transforming them into a piece of art.
Graffiti are writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or painted, typically illicitly, on a wall or other surface, often within public view. Graffiti range from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and they have existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.
Nowadays numerous graffiti artists made their transition from the streets to a gallery presenting their art. Many of them are awarded and commisioned to implement works for museums, institutions, universities and public spaces .
