Hand Painting

Hand Painting is the placement of copy onto an out-of-home structure or piece of vinyl using an artist who actually paints the artwork onto a wallscape, outdoor advertising unit or the vinyl by hand. The outdoor advertising industry was started with handpainted billboards and the handpainting of billboards continued until the early 1970s. Recently hand painted billboards are making a comeback on wallscapes and other billboard structures.
