    in the scene where i come from, a lot of people have a very old skool influence on whatever they do, and i was wondering what the politics are in the us and other places in terms of the use of the spade, chips, cuts, cut off letters,loafs and etc...

    for me myself i see kids usin these things to avoid long outlines and to fill up space....

    any thoughts?

    The attempt to revive old styles that have existed in former ages may for a time appear to be successful, but experience may now surely teach us its impossibility... It is to be lamented that the tendency of taste is at present too much towards this kind of imitation, which, as long as it lasts, can only act as a blight on art, by engaging talents that might have stamped the Age with a character of its own, in the vain endeavour to reanimate deceased Art, in which the utmost that can be accomplished will be to reproduce a body without a soul.

    Keith Haring once said:

    "No artists are part of a movement. Unless they are followers. And then they are unnecessary and doing unnecessary art. If they are exploring in an 'individual way' with 'different ideas' the idea of another individual, they are making a worthy contribution, but as soon as they call themselves followers or accept the truths they have not explored as truths, they are defeating the purpose of art as an individual expression -- Art as art."
