Graffiti Friday "Extinguishers"

This weeks theme in Graffiti Friday is extinguishers. 
There big, plain and simple and one of my favorites.
The first time I saw one of these was 01' in Seattle, OZE & GEL. Nobody had a clue as to how they did it but respected the size.
10 years later they are everywhere nation wide. 

This was the first one I saw in NYC PACMAN & R2 of Broadway

 People are starting to experiment using them for characters lately.

While they are very hard to control these are the few that I have seen done right.


  1. Excellent post!
    I'm trying to get informations about graffiti done with extinguishers. I want to publish some articles on an Italian website, like this one:
    Can I ask you some info?
    I'm trying to understand who was the first writer that used an extinguisher and also to discover something about the story of this strange and powerful technique. Where can I find this kind on news?
    you can also send me a mail:

    thank you!

    1. My email is listed in my info, send me a list of questions.
