DIY Design: Graffiti to Order

January 5, 2010

Sometimes we have to get pretty creative at AsiaLIFE. Remember the art issue from October ’08. Well, if you don’t, here it is:

Well, one of the stories on contemporary art in Vietnam featured the graffiti scene. Problem was we didn’t have access to much of it, mostly because graffiti in Vietnam isn’t strongly rooted in a street culture. Instead Vietnamese graffiti artists often practice their art as part of temporary exhibits or competitions.

So how does a design-led publication complement the story with fantastic visuals? Easy. Make your own.

Luckily, Darra Conlon, one of our former art directors, knows how to handle a can of spray paint. So he headed over to the home of AsiaLIFE’s creative director, Jonny Edbrooke, and bombed a wall in his garden. We thought it would be fun to document the process, but the video has previously only been seen by our Facebook members. We always loved this video, so we thought we’d put it up for everyone to enjoy.
