Get an agent — The first thing you will want to do is to get an agent to represent you. This is because there are a huge number of advertising agencies that sell the services of graffiti artists to companies all over the world for their print and TV commercials.
To get into this field, however, you will need an agent to represent you so contact as many art agents as you can to find the right one for you.
Work for a graffiti special events company — There are actual companies that are set up to organize special events, and that hire graffiti artists to work the events. They also pay a very good salary and, as the job is usually permanent, it is a stable way to work as a graffiti artist as well.
These graffiti artists either provide a workshop for attendees at the special event, or they participate in a live performance of graffiti art to show people how it is done.
In some cases, they may also be hired out as actual graffiti artists that paint the buildings of companies in the area, or even create graffiti murals inside a business.
