Spray Painter Job Description

Someone who paints using spray paint to decorate things.

A spray painter is someone who operates a spray paint gun or device and a spray can.

They apply paint to surfaces either commercially or non-commercially.

In commercial settings, a spray painter will usually be hired by a company to paint things such as automobiles and industrial parts, but can also be hired by individuals or businesses to spray paint items such as fences, buildings, and outdoor furniture.

Individuals may also choose to do their own spray painting.

For example, a person may choose to spray paint their own car and decorate it with a certain design, or a person may choose to spray paint something in their home like a picture or piece of furniture.
