ENVIRONMENTAL       GRAFFITO

 ‚ÄčGraffito is the singular form of the Italian graffiti, meaning 'little scratch'.

Graffito (ancient italian word meaning scratched) is a two-colour drawing technique which creates the difference in colour by simulating the scratching of a painted surface.

Graffito (plural "graffiti"), in an archaeological context, doodlings, drawings, symbols, and art, etc. etched on bone pieces from prehistoric times.

Inspired by the ancient cave paintings and symbols from Ancient Egypt 'Environmental Graffito' explores the natural wonders of the beach. Using found chalk and charcoal, drawings of found objects are scratched onto sea defence walls, creating a temporary mural of the surrounding environment.
