    Los Angeles Graffiti

    Discussion started by Maz One - Jan 9, 2003

    the Los Angeles Graffiti scene is a force that can't be denied, nothing twists your shit as much as driving along the freeway and staring up a fresh heaven from last night. this isn't meant to take away from other cities, it's just that LA has something special, a certain undefinable element to it's scene. This unspoken element is what lead to the creation of an LA based graff site known as The Prophets Have Spoken, http://www.nelanet.org/maz . The Prophets Have Spoken
    It's a relatively new site(been up and running for about 6 or 7 months) and can be found on Art Crimes under the LA(walls) section. I just read the forum about not advertising, so i hope this isn't any disrespect to the writer's forum. It's a site i think people should check out, especially writer's from Los Angeles. The sections cover a wide array of areas, including a full photo documentation on the Figueroa Drive Thru Mural Project and a large section devoted to LA River Graffiti. I don't make any money off the site or graff, just like 99% of the population involved with graff, I do the site because graff is my passion.
    I'm always looking for good photos of good work (the key word is GOOD!) and will gladly post some solid flics if you want to send them to me. My email is on the site, you can't miss it. Let me know what you think, give me some feedback.
    AND TO ALL MY LA BRETHREN... i know i probably fucked up naming the artists/crews for some of the flics. if you come across anything that is incorrect, that you personally know is wrong, drop me a line and let me know whats up...i appreciate the help more than i can express. or if you see a shot of your own piece on there and just want to say whattup, i dig hearin from ya!

    Get up, stay up, peace!

    oops..."learning process" is meant in the sense of LA based graff writers(i moved from northern cali about a year ago and havent made my rounds to meet every writer yet). it wasn't meant in the sense of learning about graff. just wanted to clarify that

    hey thanks a lot for the props guys. as for the navigation, i'm working on gettin the bugs out. i have a gang of flics to put up, but i just end up running out of areas for them. bottom line, i think the flics speak for themselves, it's just a matter of bein able to find them.

    hey graff3421...where is "out here" anyways?
