This technique uses a compressed air devise which, through a nozzle connected to a can containing the color, sprays finely pulverized paint, or other liquid colorants, on various types and sizes of surfaces. This devise first appears at the beginning of the 1900s, and was first used by artists to retouch photos: imperfect images became perfect through the refined touch-ups of the aerographic artist. Today this technique has been extended to all types of artistic expression, both pictorial and graphic, as well as technical and architectural drawings and commercial illustrations used in advertising. 

Production process

1. After prepairing the basic acrylic colors, a base is sprayed on the surface to prepare for the design.

2. This is followed by successive layers of sprayings which, using various cut-outs and silhouettes, give form to the subject of the painting.

3. Work on the painting continues with varying doses of color and air so as to give the images unlimited variations to the graphic effects and definition of light and shadow.

4. Once the work is finished, the result is very similar to a photographic image.
