College Class Offered on Graffiti Art

South Plains College

A student in the Graphic Design Program at South Plains College with a lot of experience in graffiti art will be teaching a unique class for the next few weeks. It’s Graffiti Art, being taught 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursdays thru October 20th at South Plains College. Your teacher, Joey Martinez, began his career as a graffiti artist by painting over gang graffiti, replacing it with positive messages like “Mexican Pride” or “Hispanic Culture”. Soon, it became a way of communicating with gangs in the Arnett Benson neighborhood in Lubbock. The gangs began to accept his messages and he then started asking local business for permission to paint on their walls.

 

Martinez graduated, joined U.S. Marines and traveled to various countries, including Brazil, Japan, and Germany where he learned different art styles. In the class, costing $40 and open to anyone, you’ll learn about the types of paints, styles, use of stencils and graffiti painting techniques.
