Reform: Slap Ups


In this workshop you will learn the art of slap ups. Participants will be guided through a number of activities in image making and manipulation through to creating and slapping up on our pop up graff wall.

Slap ups (AKA Sticker Art) have played an important role in street art culture as a way to cross pollinate between mediums and creative movements. Through techniques such as collage and image manipulation, Slap ups have provided a platform for street artists to create unique imagery that attempts to subvert the commercial nature of mass media.

Slap up artists often trade their work with one another in order to expand the reach and scope of distribution within their communities. An artist’s stickers may be distributed through this worldwide network and end up in places they themselves have never travelled to.
