3D Graffiti Sculptures Take Tags Off The Wall

3D Graffiti Sculptures Take Tags Off The Wall

Artist Evan Roth studies the strokes and movements street artists make and builds 3D models.

Emma Hutchings

Digital media artist Evan Roth studies the strokes and movements graffiti artists make when they are creating tags in his ongoing project ‘Graffiti Analysis.’ Custom-created software translates the motions into a special language called Graffiti Markup Language.

For CAP (Graffiti Analysis Series), Roth visualizes the movements into 3D sculptures (that take on the appearance of graffiti themselves). These 3D printed models are created algorithmically with special motion tracking software that captures the gestures of graffiti artist CAP from the 1983 documentary Style Wars. The movements are turned into flowing, silver-colored sculptures made from Chrome-dipped ABS Thermoplastic.
