AIR Graffiti is an innovative and exciting software that lets participants easily create digital graffiti using a laptop, projection screen, and infrared spray cans.
When the guest presses on an infrared spray can, the infrared light is tracked by the computer to create a vibrant, colorful drawing. Afterwards, the graffiti can be printed as a photo, shared on social media, saved as an electronic file, and saved as a video of the drawing process. The guest can choose colors to spray, use stencils, or apply specialized painting methods. Air Graffiti also includes backgrounds and branded covers, so you can easily add your logo or a customer’s logo for giveaways.

“I was born in Hungary in a small town. I first got hooked in 1998 when mysterious and colourful letters started to appear on a couple of walls just a few blocks away from my home. I instantly fell in love with the colors, the enormous shapes and the crazy energy that these paintings were emitting. My addiction stopped only once, for six months.
Then they put even stronger stuff in front of my eyes: whole train cars burning in paint, documentaries of a distant subculture from New York, crazy stories and the smell of a fresh and fascinating lifestyle – I just couldn’t resist. I became absolutely immersed from that point on, but I got lucky. I met a couple guys who were struggling with the same beautiful problem, we became true friends, and this is why we founded the Colored Effects crew in 2000.
Graffiti – let’s call it what it is – for me is a passionate but healthy competition, which requires deep concentration. That’s why I try to synchronize this dependency with a lifestyle that is more or less acceptable by the society that surrounds me.
I feel that through my addiction, all of the nights that I’ve spent awake because of it and the dangerous situations that I got out of safely, have helped to give me a really objective perspective on life. Despite the fact that I have given up on the illegal part of “writing” I will always keep those golden years as a great treasure, deep in my heart.
For the present and the future I just try to communicate this knowledge in the most honest way that is possible, whether I paint a small canvas, a huge mural, letters or a character.
My name is Fat Heat, I’m not even thinking of quitting anymore.“
