  1. The following are vintage pieces ranging from 1975 to 1978 during the master piece era. These pieces are part of a private collection and are not for sale. These are only to show what some of the founding fathers and 70's writers were doing and creating back then. Vintage RIFF 170 characters from 1975. Vintage WARM 2 piece by KOOL AID 131 from 1976. Vintage PART 1 master piece with character 1978.
  2. Some pictures from the master piece era during the early to mid 1970's. Here are a few examples of some trains that RIFF 170 had painted during the 70's. It was hard not to be blown away by the concepts and next level work by RIFF when it rolled by.
  3. The following handstyles are from NYC writers who started in the 60's or 70's. Here is a small collection of writers some of which are founding fathers/mothers of style.

Details about the quiz will be posted after everyone has entered within the time limit. Good luck to everyone who enters the RIFF 170 4000 follower giveaway!
  5. The following pictures were taken in 2019. These pictures are of pieces and tags from 1972/3 that are still up and running nearly 50 years later! These are for sure some of NYC's style writing history from the eatly years of the Master piece era. *If you know where these pieces are do not name the location and let others earn their pics and a chance to gaze at writing history!* Someone went over some history from the 70's.
  6. PHASE 2 was apart of the early years of Hip hop in NYC. PHASE has worked on quite a few album covers for many artists from all over the world. He was a man of many talents and will be greatly missed by those whose lives he touched. From albums he did designs for or rapped on here are a few examples. Continue with your own research and you will find many more as these are only a few from my personal collection. Hope you are able to discover much more about the talents and how PHASE 2 changed the world with what he did.
  7. The following are pieces from a private collection and are not for sale. These pieces are from 2003 to 2005 from various NYC writers some of which have sadly passed away like STAY HIGH 149 and IZ THE WIZ. Vintage STAY HIGH 149/EX VANDALS crew tag with classic character 2003. Vintage IZ THE WIZ drawing from 2007. Vintage TRACY 168 and STAY HIGH 149 canvas from 2003. Vintage MAD aka SEEN piece from 2005.
  8. Here are pieces are from a private collection. None of these are for sale but only to show the ideas and creativity of the writers back then. The following pieces are from the early to mid 1980's style writing era. 2BAD drawing done by KOOL AID 131 and coloured in by PART 1 1985. The TDS crew were highly inspired by RIFF 170 and carried on some of his names after he stopped writing in 1976. WORM 2 by PART 1 1985. BLADE and THE CRAZY 5 crew tag from 1985. REVO by REVOLT 1982
  9. RIFF 170 painting a STAY HIGH 149 tag in 2019. This was at the RAY-B 954 and STAN 153 wall in NYC. This was a real treat for everyone to watch RIFF do a few tags on the wall. Some of us at the jam knew this moment needed to be recorded as RIFF wasn't really painting at this point in time. VID_20190928_174626.mp4
  10. RIFF 170 coming back in 2020 and painting two walls. RIFF 170 stopped painting in 1976 and has only painted a handful of times in the 80's and late 90's. It looks like he didn't lose the magic touch and never stopped painting since 1976. Wait until RIFF 170 comes back with his famous mechanical style on the walls. 2020 was a big year for seeing a real old school Boogie down pioneer getting back up on the walls. NYC old timers jam hosted in PHILLY by SANK 1 and BABY ROCK 137. Wall from NYC
  11. PHASE 2 doing a BOY 170 tribute from 2000. BOY 170 was one of the many names that RIFF 170 use to write during the 70's. Always something to see one pioneer go out for another.
  12. Here are a few vintage drawings by RIFF 170. These drawings are from the early 70's to mid 80's. From RIFF's master pieces, characters and tags you can see why he is an early 70's style writing pioneer from NYC.
  13. The classic SOLID BOT DON RIFF car was done in 1976. It was in memory of BOT 707's brother SOLID 1 who has passed away.
  14. A few things I was lucky enough to see while checking out this exhibit which was pretty well done IMO. Went twice, had so much fun Saturday night and was able to score free tickets to come back and bring my wife who couldn't make it Saturday. Actually took flicks on Sunday, the last day of the exhibit. Complete list of Artists ect. https://beyondthestreets.com/pages/artists Personal fave both art, and general personality wise almost as soon as I walked in. Incase you haven't met him yet Futura 2000 is the man. Dude lives by his own rules very well. Probably should have shot more of the freight stuff. This giant miniature of the Southern Pacific box car was pretty dope. For scale, not sure why this looks like a bad pano but you get the picture. 2019-09-28 18.34.42.mov Cool installation, lots of foreign currency on display. Out of all the stuff I hadn't seen before, this piece above got me really stoked the most. Not that I didn't come across a lot of cool shit I hadn't seen before, this is just so dope to me. Not even sure who the artist is. Now I realize why people were taking pictures of the little signs next to the art lol. Photo does no justice it was huge, I want to say 8 feet tall maybe. Beastie Boys exhibit was pretty dope, a lot of cool details I'm sure I overlooked some of them. Taki and early NYC gang era wall. Right across from Taki, the one and only true pioneer himself. West coast pioneer/original as well. They had the uni's, and the mini's... Took a quick oontz break. I've seen this artists work before online, doesn't do it justice. Cleon Peterson I think. Really dig the style, the use of color, and the confirmation bias I get as an Anarchist. At least that's the statement/message I walk away from it with. Government is violence. Artists that have hands on shit for kids to do at art shows earn automatic respect. IMO these are the most important, and most overlooked people at any art show. Couldn't resist a quick one liner. Lady Pink shot by Martha Cooper, Jesus Christ she was dope. That's all I got, hope you enjoyed.
