nationally broadcasted commercial

 

UFO has been seen in a Sex in the City TV advert, currently running

 

i think it might be an ad for sundays premiere

it starts with footage of Sarah Jessica Parker

youll know youre seeing the right one when you see her holding a handful of red balloons

then they commence showing other main characters one by one

when they show the brunette for the very first time

look behind her

UFO!

its quick, so pay attention,

but you cant mistake those EYES....

.:enjoy:.

i think you have no idea what art school is about. You hate what you know nothing about. propbably your man said something negative and you just road the bandwagon without giving it a second thought.

 

If anything the "clean look" comes from NON art school types and the less then tipical style, like ufos comes from art schoolers trying to be artistic risk takers.

 

Clean is safe. messy or non cleaned up styles give tend to make folks nervous cause they cant pin point where is came from.

 

to sum up UFO= good fun

you= person who doesnt really think about what they are typing, even though is seems you side with ufo, your point is for shit. GOOD DAY SIR.

 

 

 

 

 

i said "GOOD DAY!"

how anyone can talk about this person in terms of artistic achievments is crazy. i started this thread to see more pictures from my favorite new york city graffiti writer. it's not letters and this person obviously does not spend alot of time trying to draw thier nickname 'real cool' (which is basically what graffiti is.) ufo is good fun for writers and non-writers and i get happy everytime i see one up. (and that's pretty often) ........i hate that citysex tv show, but it's nice to think that people will be seeing these all over ny long after any of us are dead.

this person made it into ny history pretty fast and i hope this thread helped get him or her some overseas exposure

truer words have never been spoken! (nor typed). I've been getting a kick lately out of talking to strangers about graffiti, and that is exactly what they notice. the weird, goofball shit that graffiti writers hate because it isn't ballsy enough, or it isn't a fill-in with 2-7 letters. the stuff that stays with people are the UFO's and the flowers on the ground, or the bad-ass pigs, the monster project. doesn't that seem to be the new trend? instead of writing a word or your name, you derive an icon. something that is simple and easy to replicate over and over, like a tag, yet is still an image that will stick in your mind. when I see tags, I say "yay, tags" and forget what they looked like by the next day. but pictures, images, caricatures, those things are easily remembered.

maybe this is where graff is headed, away from letters and towards icons or logos. who knows, but as it stands I think it's graffiti just the same. I'm interested in starting a list of these icons. please list any that I haven't mentioned.

 

thats a corperate strategy for advertisement. Think about it, what do you see when you think of meril-lynch, mcdonalds, or nbc. Down with mascots

I guess hes doing his own thing but out here is frisco there are people who are also really up but are more artistic with their characters and have the skills to piece. For example the tree guy AKA plant trees. Hes up everywhere and when it comes down to it he has savage pieces. Im sure this guy has heart but wheres the quality in it?

It has to take some kind of talent to do that character like it was the first time every time. I mean the easiest thing in the world would be to just do it exactly the same way all the time.

 

From what I read here he has done these thingamajigs quite a lot, and would probably have been able to practice a single stereotype image. Instead he comes off like a beginner every time, and it is always fresh.

 

Sometimes style isn´t all about technique and cleanliness...

way back, I was one of those cool kids taking LIRR day trips coming back with with really cool stories to tell my friends. prolly 94-95 I remember seeing ufo alien dude scribblings in midtown around times square. Is this accurate information, or am I imaging things? If it's true, thats pretty dope he's still holding it down.
