What Is Bubble aka Old-School Style Graffiti?

Learn about the bubble aka old-school style of graffiti from graffiti artist Paes 164 in this Howcast video.


My name is Paes164 and I'm a professional artist. I've been painting since a teenager, and I've been doing it for 20 years now. Find me at ( My Facebook is Cue creating the lettering that's not stopping and continuously spray painting without your finger being led of the tip and would throw your bubble letter, that's basically what it is, the kids would go out write their name non stop, non stop fast, fast, fast and be gone before they got caught, that's a little bit more person in a rush you know what I mean if your in a nice spot that's dark or it's a permissioned wall and obviously you have all the time in the world to get it done but if your just walking down the street and putting your name up and you want to do it big, that's the kind of history of a throw up so this would be typically done with a fat cap, no fill in, use the wall itself you know so your not going to run up on some really dark wall with a really kind of dark spray paint but its just about getting up real quick and clean, a lot of style of the throw away has a lot to do with the technique of how they paint, how they lean their spray paint to make the lines to bend a lot like calligraphy.
