VR Graffiti

During the 2020 shelter-at-home orders, I picked up a new hobby: graffiti in virtual reality. I use the Kingspray Graffiti simulator on Steam and Quest 2, mostly signing under the name FOIA. I also have been participating in the Kingspray Word Challenge, a Discord-based community of artists working down an extremely long wordlist.

Let me assure you: I am terrible at this. I’m what graffiti artists call a “toy.” But, nevertheless, I love it. You can follow my work on Instagram at @foiagraf. Below is a gallery of a few of my not-total-failures.

You can also listen me on the LA Times’ daily podcast, where I take host Gustavo Arellano on a tour of the metaverse, including Kingspray.
