We’ve noticed a trend this year and Adidas isn’t the only one interested in creating interactive live murals allowing participants to assist the artist and fill in portions of commissioned art pieces.
Latitude, a brand experience design agency came to us to help with a nationwide Adidas launch. The “adicolor” adidas launch transcends cultures and eras to redefine itself in new contexts – always taking color seriously, and taking itself less seriously. We helped curate the right graffiti artists for the gig in NY, LA and Chicago to design a black and white illustration showcasing the unique landscapes of their city that only a true local would know. Artist’s designs were then printed onto a large canvas featured at Finish Line locations and to be later colored in by store visitors over the duration of two weeks.
We created an interactive graffiti mural for Andy Grammer‘s new single Give Love featuring Lunchmoney Lewis. The canvas was placed at the Arroyo Seco Festival in Pasadena, CA when Andy was performing. There were plenty of photo ops of festival goers interacting with the piece. The artwork featured a megaphone projecting “love” in a colorful burst of imagery. Check out images of the artwork and people interacting with the piece below:
We partnered with Sofia Crokos Events to create a custom canvas for a wedding in East Hampton, NY for a private client. The bride & groom were big fans of graffiti & street art so we pieced together a lot of suggested imagery along with the wedding hashtag into this large 8×12 piece. It was also used as a backdrop to the DJ booth and an accent piece on the dance floor! Check out a photo of the completed piece below:
Graffiti USA works with some of the top graffiti & street artists in the Houston, Texas market.

Check out some of the top notch mural work by our local Houston, Texas based artists below:
We partnered with Mamba again to create some live artwork for the Electric Forest Music Festival in Michigan. We placed 6 round canvases onto the wall prior to painting the mural. Once the mural was completed, we removed the 6 individual canvases for giveaways. The wall was repainted 3 times over the course of the festival. Check out photos of the completed pieces below:
We worked with Lokai recently on a social media activation for their Neon charity bracelet release. Our Graffiti USA artists painted a mural that was broadcasted live through Snapchat and other social media platforms throughout the day. If you would like to support the charity, please find more information on the Lokai website above. Check out the image of the final piece below created across two large canvases:
We worked on a last minute graffiti project for the Kargo holiday party in Chicago. The party was hosted at Gus’ World Famous Fried Chicken in Chicago, IL last month. For this project, rather than just customizing products one by one, we had the concept of creating an iPhone case wall/canvas made up of 150 phone cases. A live graffiti artist (Mime) would then create a large abstract piece over all the cases as entertainment. When the piece was completed, the company employees picked their preference of cases off the wall and got to go home with it! It was a fun and interactive event. Some iPhone photos of the event are below but we are waiting to get some higher res images to share from the client soon!
We recently teamed up with Nickelodeon x LG to create some custom Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pieces by a few of our artists to promote a TMNT TracPhone that was modeled after the shell phones that the turtles use themselves. We worked with four artists: Gorey, Mike P, Anthony Mast, and Elmo to create custom artwork that was given away to some lucky TMNT fans! It was an honor to work on a ninja turtles related project as it was THE cartoon we watched growing up and glad that it’s still around. Check out some of the pieces created below:
Two of our talented LA based graffiti artists created this 8×20 ft mural during this year’s #BeautyConLA event held at The Reef in downtown Los Angeles. BeautyCon is the world’s premiere fashion, beauty, wellbeing & lifestyle destination for fans, brands, and content creators. (http://beautycon.com/la) The mural was painted in collaboration with Shea Moisture at their booth who was bold enough to work with graffiti artists in creating this piece. The live graffiti artwork turned heads and it certainly got a lot of attention that day and we look forward to working with them again at the NY BlogHer event later this week! Check out some photos of the LA installation below:
