VR lets you do all sorts of stuff you can’t do in everyday life, or just don’t want to do. In the case of Kingspray Graffiti, it allows you to practice a niche and risque art form while avoiding pesky legal repercussions. Already available for the Rift Platform, Kingspray Graffiti is now available on Oculus Quest!
First things first: Kingspray Graffiti isn’t a game. You won’t find high scores or boss encounters anywhere in the experience. What you’ll find instead is one of the most unique apps available for VR, taking a specialized kind of art—one that’s risky to practice outside of VR—and turns it into something fun and legal.
From developer Infectious Ape, Kingspray Graffiti includes just about everything a virtual street artist could ever want. The experience begins with a set of 10 photorealistic environments to choose from, each with surfaces of varying tone and texture, like brick, rock, metal, and glass. From there, you can choose from a wide assortment of sprays, caps, and colors, including all real-world Ironlak gloss acrylic and metallic paints. If you want to collaborate on a piece, you can share a single location with up to four other would-be artists.
After you’ve sprayed your heart out, it’s time to share your creation with the world. Kingspray Graffiti lets you display your work in a variety of exciting ways, and the virtual Phone Camera lets you take selfies to share on Instagram. There’s even a 360 Panoramic Capture mode to take immersive shots of your new piece.
