down fall to graf

Recommended Posts

Is the inter net the down fall to graffiti as we know it? With ny stores developing toy- action figure type taggers and all the access to all the best ideas, is this the beginning of the end? Is it not a tool only?

two things i dont like:

 

someone paints once every 6 months puts it on the net and has instant fame

 

people flick the SAME SHIT over and over- im sick of seeing Worms Onorok everytime i log on theyre good AND up a lot but it seems like no one will post a flick unless its a very well known writer

wtf? what is theis thread even about? Graffiti action figures being sold at Toys R Us? what?

The internet is doing nothing but helping writers...especially those that are into commercial art, it' s getting their shit out there to new audiences who wouldn't normally see it and it's good advertising. Plus its keeping the culture alive because cats can ask other ppl from around the world about their experiences and for advice , thus preventing many from repeating the same mitsakes of the past in addition it's kinda building up a fraternity/sorority between writers so they don't even have to MEET each other in the real world lol

Magazines and Web sites are destroying the regional styles, and creating a bunch of copycats...

the drawbacks- kids in the boondocks now have access to styles that are particular to certain regions, thus watering down that particular style.

Without going to that particular environment and experiencing it firsthand.

The positives- I can talk a gang of shit for the fuck of it when I am bored at work.

There are going to be people in all walks of life that imitate everything they see...from fashion to style! The net is just an evolution of info...

It has the same effect as a magazine and tv commercials....People bite whatever they likeand want to imitate..fuk it!

Graf will alwayz live...like CoCkArOaChEs..u cant stop it!

i agree with the above, and want to add the fact that we all know when someone's got true style. if you bite, it's obvious. if you got your own style thats fresh, that's obvious too. people know who's biten, and people know who's not. coackaroaches for life

The internet is just a tool, it is the people that use it that cause the problems. If a bunch of clued up writers use it to share a bit of info or a few anecdotes and photos, cool. When idiots log on and start asking which way round to use the can or where to buy etch, then that is a problem. Most of the writers here (especially the olders ones , I'm sure) all found out moist their graffiti knowledge through trial and error and hard work. These days so many kids seem to want to come to a forum like this and want it all handed on a plate to them. Before you really had to be "into" it, but now the knowledge is readily available and allows you to "dabble" with graffiti. But that isn't the internets fault, it is due to graf media getting so big and graf being popular.

In ways it's kinda good to be able to share knowledge and make it easier on everybody - the downside is (as mentioned already) cheap cheap cheap fame and hordes of little toys asking retarded questions.

 

From what Crazee said a lot of us older heads found out info through trial and error, not posting some nerd message on a website. The mystery seems to have gone from graffiti nowdays, it feels like everyone writes, or knows someone who writes - internet has taken the edge off of it. Before all this, you couldn't get connected with writers unless you knew people or worked hard at getting your name up. Now all you have to do is post 'HoO wAnTz 2 JoIn Ma CrEw??' or 'HoO wAnTz 2 Go GraFFinG?' and you're hooked up.

 

Love it or loathe it the net has changed graffiti a whole load.

 

 

I loathe it. Logical progression I know, but I loathe it.

graffiti to me is shit in the toilet. you shit, look at it for a couple seconds, and forget about it before you even flush. there is some lame ass beauty in this. real writers thrive on the little bit of unsubstantial honor that graf creates. its less than 15 minutes then youre fogotten. but if youre pure, i believe someone will remember and respect you. its about now so fuckit burn it up and keep on living.
