They will all be using Montana spray paint and paint markers. A qualified panel of judges base the art on different criteria, lettering, concept, color, composition, originality and technique.

Rules:

Registrants will be given a topic to use for inspiration, they will be allowed 60 minutes to complete this piece. Then Judges will pick winner based on same criteria for Aerosol Event. If you have never competed and want some tips take our workshop from 12-2 on Saturday 11/12 with Leon Rainbow (Judge) for tips and tricks!

What is a Black Book Battle?

Similar to the aerosol event but, instead of painting on large surfaces you draw, paint and design all on paper. Black books are a place for artists to put down ideas, Crescent® Graffiti Paper™ is designed specifically for spray paints, acrylics and won’t dry out markers. Great place for artists to sketch or experiment anywhere inspiration strikes.

Freestyle Fridays Graffiti Paper Edition

Last Weekend I participated in the Estria Battle NYC, in Brooklyn. At the Battle we all got this Graffiti Paper from Cresent Paper. They also used it for the James Top Blackbook Competition. I met the rep and she was very cool. I have worked with many papers and I was a bit skeptical about using spray paint and markers on it. I also use water color so lets throw that in. When I cracked the paper I noticed it was very smooth. I did two test pieces the results are:

Watercolor and Ink Pens

(little bit of wrinkling normal with water color)

Added Some Spray Paint With Scrap Paint

Added Some Spray Paint With Scrap Paint

Interviewed on Madlights Blog

ML:  Can you tell us a little bit about the backdrop here?

LR:  The “Big Head” was a real fun piece for me. I love incorporating the environment into my pieces. I came around the corner taking a pee break one day and I was like damn those windows could be glasses.

ML:  What influences your art the most?

LR:  I think that my environment really influences my art. Living in an urban place like Trenton keeps things real for me.  I try to keep a little grit in all my pieces.  Also, painting with different people really teaches me a lot.  I have learned most of what I know from other graffiti artists.

ML:  Do you enjoy collaborating with other artists?

LR:  I really like to collaborate with different artists.  It makes it fun and when done well it brings the strengths and styles of different artists together to create a stronger piece of art than could be done alone. One thing I have learned from years of collaborating is that not everyone can work together.  It helps to have similar artistic visions or a willingness to be open minded and adaptive.
