    Okay, I have not said anything about this whole Virs/Israeli graffiti thing, so I wanted to chime in...

    Looking at this thread reminds me of reading through the two Henry Chalfant books, Subway Art and Spraycan Art. I am reminded that Subway Art displayed the work of the kings. When Spraycan Art came out a few years later, it focused on how graffiti had spread the mass of the world, as well as going from trains to walls and galleries in a matter of less than five years.

    What's funny is how, flipping through Spraycan Art, you see various cities in the States and around the world where the graffiti is obviously underdeveloped (case in point, the flick of the bite of Zephyr's 'wild style' piece and Dondi's 'zoro' character from Wild Style), but the art was there none-the-less. Today, you look at some of the same cities that where featured in Spraycan Art, which at the time were just starting to be hit by the graffiti bug, and some of the best writers are now from those cities.

    My point? The graffiti in the Israeli scene reminds me of the continuous infuence of this art on people the world over. Sure, these kids have some work to do, but all scenes had to start somewhere, right?

    Virs is making leaps and and bounds with his letter structure. Virs, you should be extremely thankful to the writers you have met here that have contributed outlines and even basic style tutorials for your benifit! It's hard enough for most writers to find a real 'mentor' to apprentice under, so you are very lucky. You should, therefore, pass on your new-found knowledge to other writers in your scene. Help to build it up and see how far you all will come in the next few years.

    Alright, that's enough. Peace.

    SYPHER may be lacking from letter structure but his look bit more tasteful than yours. He bites and all as you say but you did when you first started as well as I recall. I remeber you stated in your other thread that you may be the best in your area but seems to me that it looks like you have some competition on your hands as it looks. Some of the cats down there have better can and paint control than you if you look and compare your fill you have there. Don't Downtrot your area so much cause it sucks. It is your scene, you have the choice ethier to improve it or tarnish it making it worst. It takes simple time and pratice in your part. What are the crews, what are the writers, and how long they been writing? Kind of paint you use and all and what areas do you guys paint?
