Nowadays, graffiti in the form of prints has taken the world by storm. This is the case for graffiti prints, which often follow the same styles, techniques, or even use of materials but on a different scale and on top of a series of different media instead of the typical use of public walls. However, it is, also, possible that artists use other kinds of resources, more usually found inside art studios, such as pens, watercolors, oil paint e.tc, which are not conventionally utilized for the creation of works on the streets. Simultaneously, graffiti in the form of prints digital or handmade allows the artists to take their time and focus on the creative process without having to take into consideration the legal consequences of creating on public sites. Nonetheless, undoubtedly the greatest advantage of prints over traditional graffiti is the fact that it can be exhibited multiply in different parts of the same city or even in a series of different cities or countries worldwide. Finally, graffiti prints seem to a certain extent to last longer in comparison with art that exists exclusively on the streets, where local authorities tend to clean or cover up numerous pieces due to their illegal status. On the other hand, exactly due to their creation behind closed doors, drawings tend to win less visibility, since they are not exposed to the public on an everyday basis. Graffiti emerged in the US during the late 1960s and, naturally, since then till our days, almost 50 years later, this art has gone through a lot of stages of reformation. Aspects of the creative process such as the materials in use and the techniques have evolved tremendously, as well as the perception of graffiti as a respectable form of art. On top of that, the former “writers” or “taggers” are now referred to as artists, a development that arose with the evergrowing institutionalization and commercialization of graffiti. Needless to say, graffiti has never ceased to exist in public sight and with time authorities all over the world have come to accept to a certain extent the presence of it inside the city web. As a result, the legal status of “writing” has enabled artists to experiment more freely with new materials and techniques, a development that has emerged especially during the past decade.
