Dude Seiko is on a different level but definity not graphic. One of the few people who has been steady pushing styles/effects while maintaining letters. Sometimes it just seems that the "older" people can't understand why nobody paints like it's 1985 and use more than 4 colors.(and yes I jock because this is what we grew up looking at)
But the influence of OZ/NZ is taking center stage for a reason, most American graffiti is played out. Strict rules, writers rocking the same peices for 10 plus years, everybody trying to be hard. Most people forget to have fun and try new shit every time you go out.
but in the end I do agree with balance even if it's a major American graf theme.
