Coming all the way from Italy, we partnered with Uevents to arrange a graffiti workshop for their group at AXA Travel Insurance while visiting Miami and taking in the surrounding culture at Wynwood Walls. Before beginning their tour of the surrounding murals, the group of 100 participants we’re able to experience what it’s like to be a graffiti artist for themselves. With spray paint in hand, each group was walked through a tutorial by our artist hosts, showing them tips and tricks to the trade and the unique medium of spray paint. After practicing the newly learned art on a free wall, participants were broken into groups to tackle their AXA branded and themed murals. While at first shy, the group quickly warmed up to the medium and we’re so excited by our team of artists, guests we’re literally taking the shirts off their backs to have our artists spray paint their signature tag and characters onto their clothing as a souvenir from the event. Artists and participants alike had an absolute blast and everyone went home with a huge smile on their face.
We worked with an amazing group of creative and talented employees from Riot Games earlier this year on a graffiti street art workshop in Los Angeles, CA. For this workshop, rather than providing a predetermined design the client wanted to give total freedom to the participants to come up with their own concepts. We provided all the materials needed including canvases, water based spray paint, nozzles, protection and stencil making materials.
After our hosts demonstrated some tips and tricks with spray paint, the teams had about 15 minutes to come up with a plan and execute their design over the course of 2 hours. Everyone had a lot of fun on this one and we were very impressed by the results for a group consisting mostly of first time spray paint users!
Barcelona based fragrance and fashion company, PUIG, came to us to help celebrate the graduating class of their new employees during a group trip to NY. In order to create a team-building activity while nodding to NY culture, we customized a graffiti workshop for the group of 36 to color and fill in an original piece of artwork designed around the companies values. Workshop attendees learned the background to graffiti and tips and tricks to using the medium of spray paint. Our artist outlined the artwork in black prior to the event for guests to fill in colors of spray paint like a giant paint-by-numbers, also having guests write in personal comments and feelings around their experiences with PUIG. Workshop attendees readily rolled up their sleeves to play with spray paint and tap into their creativity for an experience they’ll never forget. Images of the group and their time together were printed on posters as a takeaway.
After recent graffiti workshops in New York, New Jersey, Boston and Chicago, we worked with the E. & J. Gallo brand to host several more workshops in Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Atlanta, Sonoma, Los Angeles, Tampa and Miami. In all these cities, we created custom graffiti wall/canvases and taught participants how to use spray paint and stencils. They then split up into teams and used that knowledge to try to replicate an abstract design we created for the Prophecy wine label. Participants were judged on CREATIVITY, TEAM WORK and EXECUTION. Check out some event photos from all the different cities below:
We recently worked with E.&J. Gallo Winery (Prophecy Wine) on a corporate workshop/team building event for their sales teams in multiple cities (New York, Hoboken, Chicago & Boston.) For all of these 90 minute activities, we provided fabricated walls/canvases and supplies for multiple teams to compete in a fun and unique street art challenge!
Prior to the event, our Graffiti USA teams created custom murals based on the Prophecy wine label that each team was to try to mimic to the best of their ability within 45 minutes. We provided all the resources for each team including water based spray paint, stencils, protective gear, etc. Using these supplies, each team was able tto create the same piece that we painted. However, we encouraged creative freedom in terms of colors/layout. At the end of the event, each team was judged on CREATIVITY, TEAMWORK and EXECUTION.
Note: Our graffiti/street art workshops can always be tailored to your company’s needs.

Graffiti USA teamed up with a local Harlem precinct (25th Precint) on a collaborative mural project working with the neighborhood kids. We created the outline for a “Welcome to the 25th Precinct” piece in a classic large letter postcard style. Afterwards, we taped off the outline to prepare for the interactive event. During the community event, kids (and even adults) joined in to color in the mural w/ house paints. After the event was completed, we pulled the paint off the outline to reveal the completed piece.

The University Program Board at Case Western Reserve University invited us to Cleveland to paint some live custom graffiti on their campus. We were encouraged to allow students to participate in the mural that spelled out CWRU along with a cartoon spartan character (their school logo.) We also setup an additional canvas for students to try painting on their own and they had a great time doing so! Check out some of the photos from the event below:

The students at CWRU got a chance to do some spray painting of their own and help out with the mural.
Thanks again to Denise at UPB (CWRU) for organizing this event!
