    other than just looking "wierd" to you, why's it wierd, whats the difference between that and typical North American graffiti... or do you think we have "euro" style here now anyway...

    I know theres not "euro" style everywhere in europe (much of london paris) but generally speacking there is a noticble difference in the type of style...

    how would you describe it? (in comparison with other g) other than it perhaps looking "plain" (which it isnt all) or "wierd" delete this thread if you cant answr it

    dope gnary toy styles
    including but not limited to:
    fat cap outlines
    poetic demensions
    Soft highlights
    mismatched bar widths
    signatures over the piece
    huge dees
    more rounded bomb style letters rather than hard - hyper wildstyle letters
    not circa 1996 LA or new yerk style (which everyone all over the world pretty much recycles)

    start biting
    (euro styles will be officially played out Jan 1st 05 though, unfortunutly)

    The trend for 05 is conceptual themed pieces ala OZE, etc styles

    I think that the reas/ sento / ghost / lead etc is a totally different animal though - i'd call them gnarly american toy styles

    theres a difference beetween style pieces on trains and on walls in europe i think.

    a lot of americans will not like euro stuff by what they see on trains.

    the nice reply:

    europe is not a country, it is a large group of countries, generally referred to as a continent. two cities within one country can have completely different styles, so you can gather that a whole continent's styles would be so varied they defy definition.

    the asshole reply:

    instead of worrying about defining 'euro' style and debating it like a fucking herb, come to the realisation that everyone is so far past giving a shit about this topic it's like we're all rocking the new helium nike shitkicker joints, and you're still in your dunks with the zimbabwe colorway.
