Virgin Brick or Virgin spot is a common slang among the graffiti community. The term refers to a surface that has not been painted with graffiti before. In a city as saturated with graffiti as Chicago, the pursuit of finding the ideal place to paint drives the graffiti artists to find new and creative spaces. Taking this idea of the quest for the perfect surface to spray paint, I’ve began searching for and buying my own Virgin Brick’s to spray paint. The form of the pieces are often inspired and influenced by minimalist sculptures.
