"Aerosolgraphia" (spray painting) is a fascinating technique for producing art and it not limited to surreptitious grafitti excursions. This artist uses spray paint to create complicated compositions. You can click on the the title above and visit his website. There you will see videos demonstrating his method of painting. Because of the nature of the acrylic spray paints, he has to work extremely quickly to get the effects he wants before the paint dries. In the video, he creates a scene in ten minutes AND his studio is on the street, so he is being watched the whole time by an audience. Notice how he works from back to the front in his compositions. He obviously has a great deal of experience with his materials and techniques to be able to work so quickly!
