R.I.P. NACE-MAYHEM/FC/CBS/DF

Recommended Posts

to start off, respect to nace. In all honesty i never liked his graffiti, BUT, I completely respected it for being original AND evolving. very few writers these days are doing anything new and nace definately had his own thing going on. Innovation is the key regardless of (opinion of) style. heres to hoping this backwards world is a better place once you get to leave it.

safe journeys to nace.

 

 

AND TO ANYONE WHO READ THIS AND DIDNT THINK TWICE PLEASE DO..............

""ok, just to clear up some of the rumors and misinformation going around:

the accident happened last nite around 7pm. ****, Nace, **** and ****** (from ***** *******) were driving around Cincinnati (not going home), getting flicks of the walls other damage left after scribble. The driver of the van crossed the median and hit ****'s car head on. It is a miracle three people survived. The intoxication of the other driver has not yet been determined! The cops are investigating. **** is now in stable condition with a fractured skull. **** is also ok with a few broken ribbs and a bruised lung. **** is also doing ok with a bruised hip, a few ribbs and leg. Nace died in the hospital late last night. John was a good guy and my heart goes out to his family and Karla, his girlfriend. thats what happened. RIP, john, you'll be missed!""

WHAT WE DO IS ILLEGAL. !NEVER! FORGET THIS! THERE IS NO REASON TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT WRITERS WERE IN THE CAR AND THEIR SPECIFIC INJURIES. OR EVEN WORSE WHO'S CAR IT WAS. REMEMBER THIS IS A SECRET SOCIETY HATED BY MANY OUR ENEMIES ARE NUMEROUS. EVEN WHEN DEALING WITH THE DEATH OF A FELLOW SOLDIER KEEP YOUR GUARD UP. THINK TWICE. PEOPLE READ THIS SHIT. (i know that some boards have webmasters that edit mesages with too much information how about this site?)

I had the pleasure of meeting John and

and friends while painting this weekend

in cincy. He was by far one of the nicest

writers i've ever met. He was a true

innovator and a huge contributer to the

freight movement. Get well guys and keep

your heads up.....REKONE

nace has been around for almost as long as i've known about graffiti in the northeast. everyone knows nace, everyone can recognize a nace piece without looking twice yet you still do..

 

this just shows how upside down and ass backwards the world is. to see a dedicated straight edge kid with a good head on his shoulders and a love for something fall as the result of one loser's mistake. nace crushed and nace won't even need dedications and shouts to live on forever because he's done so much himself. nevertheless we will throw nace up, just as an honor. after this i'm heading out to go paint, and it's fucked up that i can still go out and put nace up but he can't ever do it himself again. it shows how lucky the rest of us are...and how precious these times can be.

 

kern, i hope you have a speedy recovery bro. i wish we could have rocked again before i left. and a speedy recovery to nesm, and scream. and condolences to the mayhem network, nace's family, and friends.

 

r.i.p. to all the writers who have passed.

It's great to see how many others have been blessed by Nace's presence. The support of other writers has been the only thing that has let people like mysef Chip and Okae threw this situation and we all thank everyone like Lead Vizy Rapes and everyone else who has supported us and kept us from going on a killing spree.

 

Eatitupasshole will be dedicating the next issue intirly to Nace. I feel this is the only thing we can do to even start to come close to showing our appreciation for our best friend and painting partner for the past 6 or 7 years. I welcome everyone who has stories about Nace or comments about him to email me at eiuamag@hotmail.com.

 

Please write Nace in the subject line and leave your name at the end of the email and I will use all the quotes and comments in the next issue. If anyone is not on our mailing list already send another email with "mailing list" in the subject line.

 

Thanks again to everyone out there and take this situation to realize how short our time on this planet is and how much we take for granted the people we love everyday, because it's pretty easy to forget untill there not here tomorrow.

I think this is a great way to remember him. I never new Nace, but his work was(is) a great inspiration to me, and he has always been one of those writers whose work I will go out of my way to photograph if I happen upon it. His loss is a huge blow to the community, and I'm sure that for those who knew him it must hurt a thousand times more.

Since his work and memory needs to live on, I decided to put together all my flix of him on a little tribute page. Its not much, but I feel I need to do somthing....

Love & Hope to all those who knew him...stay strong.

I have always thought that a guy like John was gonna end up married, with kids, and living the American lifestyle in Jersey till

he would be old and gray. I always felt safe around him. Anyone that knew John knew

how organized and practical he was. John took good care of himself and the people around him. He helped me through a lot and put up with my shifting personality for a long time.

John was the youngest guy I knew that steadily wore a fadora (those grandpa hats). I'll remember his green soccer shirt that he wore everytime he painted. And I'll never forget the way he would say "really" after everytime you told him something.

I met Nace in 96' while I was painting one of the first walls I ever painted in Jersey. I didnt know anything about Jersey or the writers it had... I came over here from New York and figured that my writing career was over.

John rolled up and I said whats up and asked if he writes.. He said that he writes "a little bit" and that he writes Nace. He was kinda being sarcastic.. but I never really heard of him. I wasn't up on magazines and didn't know much except what I saw on the street or in video's.

I was eager to hook up with someone out here and gave him my number. Long story-short the shit I'm doing now wouldn't be as good If I didn't have him as a painting partner during those couple of years.

I never cleaned my pieces, or really even put 3-d's on em till I started painting with him... I learned about one colored fills for cleaning and doing forcefields after your main outline. he helped me come a long way in a short period of time.

We took some never to forget graffiti trips, and experienced shit that is not to be said (Newark).

He's the reason why I became a vegetarian and droppred like 30 lbs. Never met someone that didn't eat meat before.

I remember how he bugged out once when i grabbed a pork chop from kitchen table and jumped in his car with it.. He was covering his nose and was like "aaah dude,, get rid of that!" I thought he was silly about that at first, but he got me hooked and I still dont eat the shit.

After John Zimkus there is "Nace". Where there is now a "was" there is an "is". The idea or the work of Nace is not past tense... It is present and on-going... Nace is' IS how we should say. The guys done too much for us to see, for us to make it all as done. His art is present and on-going through you! You are the ones that carry on his name and his ideas... keeping this man alive.

 

Nace is an innovator. He is formatted in his work and all is down to a science.. Nace's technical style, past the lettering alone took on other shapes and ideas. Nace's work is alive and on the surfaces of some of the most hardest to do areas. The quality is there and the inspiration is up to you. Countless memories with this guy... I will never forget John Zimkus...

 

my next 50 pieces will be in your name.
