Procedures and understanding of classical and academic painting have been applied to the creation of surrealistic, narrative environments with a typographical focus, arriving at "Graffine Art." Graffine Art uses the power of graffiti coupled with the elegance of oil on canvas to spread knowledge and embrace reality. Graffine Art, although it displays graffiti-esq imagery, is not graffiti. Whereas graffiti is generally about notoriety, the purpose of Graffine Art is to convey a message of the artists' choosing through skilled typography, the understanding of light and form, and through accurate translation of these into paint. Realist painting, as the marriage of science and art defines the ultimate goal, with graffiti as the subject matter.
