Graffito is a technique whereby a layer of paint or plaster is laid over a dry underlayer, and while it is still wet, lines are incised so that the contrasting coloured underlayer is exposed. Occasionally used in painting but more frequently on walls. Graffito can also mean drawing or words hastily scratched on walls. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
