Everything you see here in my shop is an original piece of artwork. Each stencil is designed and hand cut by myself. Unless stated otherwise, all of my paintings are done on handmade wood canvases that I also create. So from start to finish, these are completely unique handmade pieces of art.
Each painting is done using artist grade spray paints and finished off with a high gloss varnish that really makes the colors pop.

THEFACTORY101 : Creating graffiti art paintings one spray at a time...

One night in 2007 a friend and I were messing around with images on the computer in Photoshop and while doing so I began to see the images as stencils. As I studied them closely, I could see the basic shapes and forms that made the images what they were. The lines that made up a persons nose, eyes, mouth etc. I went home and started working on making photos into stencils, carving them out of a sheet of paper with an exacto knife and then spray painting them onto pieces of wood and canvases. At first the paintings were very simple. A splash of color with a stencil sprayed on top. Then I began to focus more on making my backgrounds more detailed and interesting using shapes and a multitude of colors. I wanted my paintings to look like you had cut a piece of graffiti right out of a wall somewhere. To get this effect, I do most of my work on wood canvases that I make myself. So from start to finish, each painting is completely handmade piece of artwork.
I have been making art all of my life. I never would have guessed that I would find myself making part of my living off of it, but here I am.
My art is so me. The stencils I make reflect the people, places and things that I love, and am also inspired by ideas that others give me.
Thanks so much for stopping by my store and I hope you enjoy what you see.
THEFACTORY101 is graffiti for the interior.

hello! and thank you for checking out thefactory101. i want your buying experience with me to be a pleasant one. i have sold many items here on Etsy, and all of those transactions have gone very well. all items have been shipped and successfully made it to their destinations unharmed and the general consensus is that people have been very happy with my work. all of my work is original, so it is of the utmost importance that it is packaged and shipped with great care.

Payment
my page is set up for Paypal only to help keep transactions quick and easy!
IMPORTANT:
If payment is not received within 3 days of sale, item will be re-posted for sale, unless other arrangements have made between myself and the buyer. i generally try to contact the buyer if payment is not received within the first day, but if i do not receive any sort of response or payment within three days i will cancel the sale and repost the item.
Shipping
all items are shipped form my house USPS Priority which is a 2-3 day service. if you feel the need to add insurance please add $3.00 to original shipping cost, but as long as your address registered on Etsy is correct, it should make it just fine. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CURRENT ON YOUR ETSY PROFILE. i do not cross reference with the address on your Paypal account. i assume that the address on your Etsy account is the address you will want it shipped to. if for some reason you will want it sent to another destination aka as a gift or something, you will have to let me know ASAP. Lastly, if a piece is returned due to an incorrect address, you will be billed again for extra shipping costs so i can re-ship the item.
Refunds and Exchanges
i do my very best to photograph my work as clean and clear as possible from multiple angles, so you have a really good idea of what your getting. refunds or exchanges will not be accepted. all items are packed very well, but if you feel the need to add insurance to your order please add $3.00 to the shipping cost for the item. if an item is not insured, i cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred during shipping.
