Graffiti Technica is dedicated to the progression of hardcore electronic art and 3d graffiti. The graffiti designs and lettering on this site are completely digital as I want to explore new ways of creating pieces. Contact: info (at) graffititechnica.com
3d Graffiti - Breath. Second work in new style follows on from 'Life.
3d graffiti lettering sculpture
3d print of graffiti
First printout of my 3d graffiti designs as a real world object. Used a machine for rapid prototyping. The object was created by successive layers of material over 17 hours of printing. Printing from a .STL file exported from one of my graffiti designs.
Sculpture of my 3d graffiti work 'Radeon -
Radeon sculpture close up
Materials testing for graffiti sculpture
'Life - inspired by old wold lettering
Raid - inspired by Egyption art and cubist styles.
'Repeat - using apple textures and water.
Inspired by district 9 weapons
Ironlak paint inspired 3d graffiti
3d graffiti - Error
OCAU - Overclockers Australia. Based on original logo. Two lines of balance in this work the angles that the o creates and the last part of the u twist to form a shape that could wrap around the Australia map. And obviously the diagonal line of the wires and the circle thing.. Very happy wtih the balance of this work - chaotic but balanced.
Killerbits - using a traditional style of graffiti with a modern vibe.
Prime - 3d graffiti based on a few shapes.
Relentless. Based on a water drill
Tracked one of my old designs 'Free into a space outside the Brisbane Art Gallery
Razer wallpaper - I love their gaming mice.
6th work - Gigabyte wallpaper. Think I used to own one of these motherboards once.
Destroy - The whole concept behind this work was to create an object that was using water as it's core and have it distribute the water through the lettering. This design uses the same techniques as 'skeme and 'setup. I've also made a print of this shirt...
2010 - Graffiti Technica will be realeasing a range of clothes.
'Setup - follows on from Skeme.
Electro - based on retro games, house music and of course electro.
Skeme - Mecha style
Metric 10 - new work using a new style.
Adapt - Another white design - trying to get into a bolder design style and but more emphasis on shape and form rather than lettering
Frantic - This work follows on from 'serve - which was inspired by bjorks film "all is full of love".
Remain - Another work outside the art gallery in Brisbane. All these photos were taken around the same time so I have a collection of works that I want to do in public spaces around Brisbane.
3d graffiti - Technica as 3 a1 posters. Commisioned work based around highend speaker design.
Dreams - 3d graffiti inspired by the game design of "mirrors edge". As soon as I saw the style of that game I went out and bought it - just beautiful. This is outside the Brisbane Museum and art gallery a wide open concrete space for people to hang around in.
Network- Industrial design inspired by factories and industrial plants at West End in Brisbane. No parking!
Dither - Writing in light graffiti design. This design is obviously taking inspiration from light writing. The photo is of the Story Bridge in Brisbane.
'Digital - Brisbane City Hall. Wanted to contrast the old building with something new and digital.
'Flow - Kurilpa Bridge Brisbane.
'Razer - Another spot in west end, Brisbane. HD version in downloads.
'Photek - Using the side of the State library in Brisbane next to the Gallery of modern art. HD version in downloads.
'Symptoms-02 -Latest work that follows on from Phoenix-01. Did the original design while waiting for a train.I wasn't happy with the first composite work (photoshop crashed and lost the PSD) so this is the second attempt. The photo is of the sculptures in Reddacliff Place in Brisbane Square by Donna Marcus (steam). I really these futuristic things stuck right in the middle of the city.
'Phoenix-01 - I wanted to do a very minimal design with this one and just plonk it in a nice normal environment. Would love a HD video camera so that I could actually track this design into moving vision. Photo is of Maroochydore on the sunshine coast (Australia).
'Noise dae - A work that is trying to get away from making serious dark graffiti designs all the time. I had the idea that this would be like a kids art thing where kids would be able to throw paint at this work. The building is the side of the Art gallery in Brisbane so it would be a perfect spot.
Peace - Brisbane, under tunnel near Roma Street parklands. Energy, Energy, ENERGY.Took this photo especially for this work I wanted to get the graffiti design plugged into the railway electricity grid and look as if it is drawing power from the system. Graffiti seems to have a long heritage with the railways from early designs bombed on the side of trains to tags all over the stations. The actual location is perfect to composite with as it has the stone walls but also looks up into the train lines.
Metra II - This was an idea that I had from when I first started the site. I wanted to create a graffiti design that was organic and soft. So many times I have looked at vines and leafs and seen the angles that are similar to graffiti angles for lettering. Very hard to explain to someone that a vine looks like graffiti.
'Glitch - This has to be one of my favorite designs so far, the photo comes from West End in Brisbane and is actually a rather boring shot of a factory. What I liked about this space was the two levels of the car park and the upper level, I thought it would be perfect to have the word slinking up and over the fence. This is also one of the first works that I have tried to get the spattered paint look - seems to work really well and gives the text a lot of movement. Looks evil as well.
'Metra - This was inspired by a very old Russian television commercial for a fashion brand. In the ad they had this giant white mecha robot ascending from a perfect field into a blue sky. What made it work was the contrast between the organic grass and the hard lines of the robotic design.
Metra - Art gallery Brisbane. Another space that was perfect for 3d graff design.. It is the intersection between 3 walls and looks up into the sky. The walls themselves are a beautiful rough concrete.
'Free - Another composite that I have been thinking about for ages now. I had the idea that graffiti is always viewed in a scale that is always roughly human size and is always on a wall. I wanted to break both those rules with this one and make something totally different. The building in the background is the Mincom building on the corner of Turbot St and Edward St in Brisbane, this has big red chunks of color on it which seemed to match the yellow in the design.
'glitch - yes I know it's hard to read. Listening to abstract experimental glitch music and this came out of my brain. Download full ver in downloads.
'superficial - A design have been thinking about doing for a long time now. Wanted to do some graff with red and yellow for some reason and this was the perfect design for it
Really happy with this one - 'master. I want to start to explore my lettering more and get away from traditional styles of graffiti design.
'remove- I have been really interested in researching graffiti lately after being ask a few questions about how I do my work. Everytime I was looking for graffit topics 'removal' seemed to feature heavily. There is a whole industry of products based around graffiti removal and I wanted to create something based on that concept.
Latest work "flood" inspired by a public art work at the Brisbane Powerhouse. Wanted to build a semi realistic 3d graffiti work and put it into a public space. I see this bold use of color, form and scale around a lot now.
"Drown" - I have been thinking about this work for a long time now and finally got round to doing it. It was based on the graffiti piece "unleash" that I did ages ago. The concept is that this lettering is drowning so it is twisting and turning trying to get out.
"Steampunk"- I've been seeing steampunk design everywhere lately and I love it! It actually reminds me of a lot of other futurist styles.
Have finanally updated this work that I did ages ago for a skateboard competition. I wanted to do a liquid chrome feel to the text and really focus on getting the lettering the way I wanted. I really like using a limited colors in my work now. HD version in wallpaper downloads section.
Graffiti work for Australian DJ forums. Really happy with this work. I wanted to get a lot more color into it than my other stuff. Graffiti seems to go so well with the promotion of music styles - obviously it started out being associated with hip hop and rap however I am a big fan of having evil drum n bass on while designing. The energy of the music seems to suit the style of design.
Also tried to get some more technology into this work as along the way I have moved away from my original idea of combining technology and graffiti together to form something different than traditional graff.

Hardcore version of kranky digital
Kranky Digital online internet radio -This is my favorite Drum n Bass online radio channel. Lots of evil breaks and tasty drum n bass. Download the high res wallpaper and be sure to tune in.
Eva - I wanted to do a piece using the same shape of geometry repeated. In this case the lettering style for the E is essentially the same shape for the V and A - it makes for a nice balanced work. This work was inspired partly by the design of Eve in Wall-e. It's interesting that people are aware of the design style of white/raytraced as a way of indicating futurism. Maybe this is thanks to Mac design in mainstream culture? Either way it seems the future of technology design is to cover up the workings in reflective surfaces and have the intelligence of the system as the selling point.
At long last - a 3d graffiti piece in a scrollable panorama! I've wanted to do this for a long time now - i've never seen it done before and graffiti is perfect for it. Considering that most of the time graffiti is flat 2d painted on walls I want to explore all different ways of using technology to display my work. I'd love to make this interactive somehow and have it projected so that people could control the movements or even control what happens inside the vision.
Just a simple composite you can download the hd wallpaper. Driving past these houses I thought it would be cool to add a massive piece to the top of the building. I think if this ever happened in real life people would freak out - the angles of graffiti aren't accepted in society. The community would find it disturbing and not tolerate it
Minimalism - Want to amp up the style and start making my work move. Everyone has seen the basic 3d style but it’s hard to find graffiti that’s animated.
Complex graffiti - This art is the start of many more complex pieces. I don't just want to repeat the style that is already out there but bring something new that only 3d in machines can bring. In this work I wanted just to be able to get the arrow lines to bend around the lettering so it truly is a 3d object rather than a 2d extrusion.
Added to the download section at HD res.
about time for some environments. Nature and graffiti a perfect match.
"bas" added a full HD render to the downloads section. A piece exploring z-depth within the lettering like the cross bar in the "a" comming out in space. One of my favourite works.
Space - Another work trying to get a sense of movement and atmosphere rather than just a static image. I was inspired by some lame tagging on a public bridge that I saw, obviously kids who had no idea. At least learn your craft before costing the city money to paint over your abomination. Or hey, do it on a computer. Download high res image
Unleash started off as an experimental work I wanted to get some real wildstyle going on with a sense of movement. If I am to use 3d instead of paint I want to push the boundaries of what the machines can do. I will be exploring partical based systems and fluid simulations after working on this piece.
01/07/08 Electron Microscope Electron Piece inspired by images taken with an electron microscope. I wanted to get a close up lens effect on these images showing that the lettering would be microscopic compared to cells.
Tests for light tag "neon". Takes a long time to render as it has global illumination, depth of field and motion blur. Each point of light is emitting photons into the scene. Uploaded HD renders and test render:
1280 x 720 (5.3meg)
I will come back to this and make the text write on, the original idea was to have the floor crack as it got the the base of the "e".
"Freq" graffiti Frequency
"Freq" Started out as a tribute to the Nagra 4.2 professional audio tape recorder - was inspired by the vector lines and VU meters on the front however ended up as a sort of anime 3d mecha robot graffiti work from hell. Hard angular lines!
Cat5 Graffiti tag
CAT-5 "The revolution will not be televised". It will be on torrent
Inspired by the endless amounts of CAT-5 cable. wiki. This work was about bending the lines enough in z-space so that it looked like tagging. I really like the idea of using technology as the next wave for graffiti - the internet has had such a role in spreading styles/ideas and allowing artists to connect and collaborate. It seems only fitting that people use the technology to advanced the medium. Projects like taggedinmotion are not only on the fringe of graffiti but on the fringe of technology - I love it.
Atari 2600 Graffiti - the console that inspired so many. You could argue that these early gamming consoles heralded the age of consumer based electronics on a mass scale. Along with TV these were the pioneers in electronics allowing people to bring what was clunky upright gamming units into their home. Great site about the Magnavox odyssey how awesome - pong! This was truly one of the first.
Construct - If you don't like heavy earth moving equipment there is something wrong with you. These machines are graffiti magnets the orange/yellow color makes a nice background I guess however i am more inspired by the machines and their functional and technical design.
