Graffiti Without Caps – Smash137 & Risk

Splatter Graffiti | Spray-painting without caps is a nice way to create unique backgrounds and fillings and to create in that way a unique, rough piece!

Also the famous two graffiti artists Smash137 and Risk used this technique when caught up the other day to paint a wall near Miami Beach.

Both destroyed the covers of their cans by the help of some knifes to paint in a more or less uncontrolled way. Although I really love that rough and unconventional style I never tried it myself because it’s a bit waste, but I have to say it looks like a lot of fun and for sure it is an alternative way of spray-painting!

The result is a sick collaboration piece. I’m really impressed how Smash and Risk handled it and would like to see more new works by both artists!

  1. It’s not unique. Me and loads of other writers have for years been doing this for years. We pop the cans to stop kids getting the last dregs of paint out the cans we throw away near walls we’ve painted as the kids will tag over the fresh pieces.

    Some of us rather than waste the dregs will stab the can like in the video and spray it up as part of the piece or the background.
