A selection of videos posted on FatCap. Street Art and Graffiti are everywhere, from big cities to small villages. Let's discover fascinating projects, either legal or vandal.

Best of street art and graffiti videos posted on FatCap.

The FatCap Team is proud to announce that we surpassed the 1,700 videos posted. Nobody can deny that Street art and Graffiti invaded video media... for our greatest happiness. We are  impressed by the variety and the quality of videos posted on FatCap. The original projects abound and gifted cameramen, directors, editors get more and more involved in urban art.


The variety of videos is pretty broad: Documentaries, coverings, historical archives, animation, stop-motion, timelapse,  jam festivals summarises, interviews, studio visits, interior design, vandal session, burners, tutorial to create your own stencils, markers, fire extinguishers, sketches, video of light painting ... etc.


We want to say thank you to all our members, to all those who upload their videos via their FatCap account or by sending us a mail. Who can say nowadays that the graffiti and street art movements are minor, diminished, or restricted? Who can say that this is a fad, or a teenage hobby?


This article is one proof among others that we are facing one of the most prolific artistic movements and this is only the beginning!

Thank you all and keep it fresh.


All the following videos (and many others) are available in our video section. You can also find them on the artists or crews  pages, and on the cities and countries sections
