          The increasing presence and recognition of urban art work in the cities around the world, the emergence of street artists with world-wide reputation and new artistic codes as well as the connection of urban/street art with design and technology, compose an interesting and multifaceted area of study and research.

          This paper presents the design and early implementation of a digitally enhanced street art system able to support the creation of large scale outdoor murals using aerosol spray cans on vertical surfaces. The purpose of this design is twofold:

          • to offer great assistance in the production of street art under legal assignment, particularly in situations where economic, territorial and environmental conditions are restrictive towards, or prohibiting the use of auxiliary means for the artist and the employer, such as lifting equipment and machinery or construction installation.

          • to investigate how far the boundaries that connect art, design and technology can be pushed while exploring the unique characteristics and capabilities of such a multidisciplinary approach.

          The implemented system aims to evolve the artist’s creativity and expressiveness by enriching tools’ variety. Future system modifications will bring about interactions of different scientific and artistic environments.
