Street Art and graffiti have been gaining momentum in the art world, so it’s no surprise that the Fotoffiti app is so popular. Fotofitti allows you to convert any photo into a graffiti stencil without art skills or a confrontation with the law. Just pick a photo and a paint color then shake to spray. Fotofitti is available for the iPhone or iPad.
British street artist Ame72 developed iTag Graffiti in order to let people experience the process of creating graffiti without having to paint on a wall. The app provides an decent level of realism with various spray sizes, paint drips, paint colors and backgrounds to choose from. The app is currently available for the iPhone and iPad with an Android version on the way.
SketchBook Pro is known mostly as a robust desktop art application, but Autodesk also makes great mobile versions. Ranging a bit in price and features, they offer a smartphone version and a tablet version for both Apple and Android devices. Unlike most of the apps on this list, the Sketchbook Pro and Sketchbook Mobile apps take a more traditional approach to creating art and require quite a bit more skill.
ArtRage makes the transition from real mediums (paint, pencil, ink) to digital art a painless one. It replicates real life tools like oil brushes, palette knives, and inking pens. The app is ideal for advanced users with a strong artistic ability. ArtRage is available on iTunes for either the iPhone or iPad.
