When L’Oreal needed an authentic graffiti backdrop to outfit their newly revamped office space, they knew just the right team to partner with. The Graffiti USA team was tasked with creating a piece that spoke of the distribution side of their business while also acknowledging and interacting with some of the space’s unique quirks and textures. The mural tells their story while serving as an inspirational background for their team and captivates guests to their facility. We especially enjoyed having our artwork incorporated in the roof skyline fabrication they provided. Always appreciate working with a creative bunch-Peep the photos!
We were recently approached by a very close knit team of co-workers at Trifecta Clinical to help create a tribute mural for the head of their IT department who had recently passed away. This was an amazing gesture and we were honored to help pay tribute to Roger Chou. While we are used to painting memorials on the street, this is the first one done within a corporate office. Check out the completed tribute piece below.

While renovating their Prospect Park victorian home, this private resident wanted to add energy into the play area of their basement for their two sons. Originally, the project started with an abstract direction which adapted into this more illustrative piece using keywords for the boy’s interests and their names, while incorporating a NYC subway and street culture theme. Working with the client and their interior designer/architect, everyone was very happy with the final product and liked the “grittiness” the spray paint gave the mural.
The Bleacher Report covers everything from professional and college football and basketball, NASCAR, fantasy sports and more – so when they came to us to help with production for a video to feature Jelly Fam, we were interested. Jelly Fam, a group of young athletes from Harlem and New Jersey have taken basketball courts by storm with their signature move, “The Jelly”. As a NY Revolution, Bleacher Report wanted to reference the relationship between basketball and NYC street culture with b-roll from one of our artists spray painting the Jelly Fam logo atop our studio building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
We created this studio installation for a repeat client after installing an abstract piece at his residence. The client was extremely pleased with our artist’s work in creating a vibrant and sophisticated piece of artwork for his home, that he trusted our experience and talent in executing a custom piece with a new style and direction for his studio. Inspired by cyclist Greg Lemonds and the city of Paris, we created a more conceptual piece of work while still pulling in abstract design elements we used in his home. Both the client and artist were pleased with how little creative direction and artistic freedom led to two distinct pieces of timeless artwork that have subtle undertones in common with each other.
Mackenzie-Childs, an eccentric boutique specializing in ceramics, enamelware, and other upscale home decor and gifts came to us to help with a pop-up shop they were opening in Georgetown, Washington D.C. With the desire to grab the attention of a new neighborhood, they were looking to transform their ordinary storefront into something extraordinary and noticeable to increase awareness and foot traffic. Our team gave their two-story building façade a complete facelift – painting the entire building with a rich red backdrop, while spray painting a photorealistic image of one of their most popular courtly check enamel tea kettles. The client was thrilled with our professionalism and timely execution and are even consider updating the mural come winter time.
We collaborated again with the Mod Pizza design team to paint a graffiti style piece for one of their new stores recently opened at Harden Ranch Plaza in Salinas, CA. For this piece, the client was open to us doing what we do best with traditional graffiti lettering. We installed this piece using spray paint with the general color scheme direction coming from the client’s creative team. The artwork was painted on raw brick texture which made a cool/authentic backdrop. We are always a fan of painting something that ties in with our graffiti roots!

The Mod Pizza creative team designed this mural that we painted at a new restaurant that opened up a few months ago at Factoria in Bellevue. Our local Seattle artist was able to paint this mural in about 2 days. Due to the specific design, we decided to go with a traditional brush method for the installation. After the mural was completed, the client installed a lit up sign in the center of the piece that worked with the overall artwork. Always a pleasure working with the Mod Pizza team!

We worked with the amazing team at Extraordinary Events to create some live graffiti art at this year’s Shop.org conference hosted by the National Retail Federation. We have painted many canvases for live art events in the past, but this time, we were tasked to fabricate a see through plexiglass canvas along with the challenge of our artist creating the work backwards! We are always open to tackle new concepts and this was definitely an interesting opportunity for us.
We ended up creating a 10 ft x 5 ft custom frame that held a piece of plexiglass that could be easily swapped out and re-used for future projects. The client was very pleasant to work with and we came up with a design to convey the theme of this year’s conference.
When painting artwork backwards, you need to plan to create the outline first and essentially do everything we would normally do in reverse. There is a lot of planning ahead involved. Fortunately, we were able to also embellish the piece on the front side as well to add some finder detail. We were very happy with the end results. Check out the completed piece and time lapse video of the artwork below:
Every now and then we have the opportunity to work with amazing clients who really appreciate graffiti art and understand what it means to give artists their true artistic freedom. We painted a private exterior residential commission in West Seattle recently where this was the case. A special thank you to the homeowner for being so understanding and letting the artist do what they do best. Our artist worked on an abstract concept to fit into the tight space. On site, he embellished the piece to make it work best with the environment and bled some of the designs onto the stairs. The final piece was an eclectic addition as part of their home renovation.
