Lighting the Way for Graffiti at Night

A novel spray-can attachment “designed for rebels of the art world” is now offering after-dark assistance to taggers who don’t have enough work time in their day.


LASH Light

The colorful LASH light is activated by a motion that taggers reportedly know well: shaking.

LASH is a light attachment for spray cans by industrial designer Subinay Malhotra of New Delhi, India.

The light is mounted to a flexible silicone sleeve that is designed to hug any aerosol can. The motion-charged, bright LED light has a push-on button. And, befitting an artistic market, the product is available in a wide range of rich colors.

'Illicitly or Otherwise'

LASH is already drawing raves in some circles.

In a post titled "Banksy Will Approve," Yanko Design raves that LASH "makes graffiti easy!" The light "illuminates your workspace, but not so much that you'll alert anyone nearby," the company notes.

The new LASH light "makes graffiti easy!" according to one review.

And reports approvingly that the LEDs "are intentionally dim" so that "artists can see what they are doing on an as-needed basis but blend back into the shadows with a simple click."

Moreover, the site says, the motion needed to charge the light is "familiar to anyone who has sprayed paint, illicitly or otherwise: the shaking action one has to repeat to keep on painting."

LASH, adds Trendhunter, "serves to provide direct illumination for all of your midnight street art projects."

Yanko Design says the unit is "designed for rebels of the art world," calling LASH "a must-have addition to any street artist’s toolkit."

Does the purchaser get put on a watch list? I find this ridiculous, but I suppose there would be a market for it.
