Italian duo Caktus&Maria have certainly perfected the shading and color selection for their murals. Their spray-painted portraits are generally tribute art—e.g. at top an acknowledgement to poet Charles Bukowski, and the last one within post of/for cartoonist Jean Giraud.

Graffiti: It is Time For Change

Looking at C215’s spray paint portraits from a few years ago, it is noticeable an evolution in terms of line detail and coloring. And this just means that his stencil cutouts are much more complex. Additionally, it is intriguing that the artist shows his face in some pictures at Flickr, because most graffitists avoid that […]
