MOOGLE?

does it really matter if its seen?

Recommended Posts

i'm not big on fame, or even crushing a city. but to me some of the best spots hardly ever get hit because they arent visable to most people.

 

like sewers,under seats, inside hand dryers, behind bushes. ect

 

 

i was just wondering your views on visability in graffiti.

i love having my stuff out in the open, it can really brighten up a trip to the grocery store, i feel the same way about seeing others see it.

For the fact of purely getting up, known, and around of course visibility is going to be a big factor. When you have wiggertoys like tease hitting a legal wall, its all about being seen, and laughed at. But to me theres nothing better then taking a mid-day walk around the city down the side allies to the main roads and being like oh wow you see that so and so piece back here? Then walking into the more heavy flow areas and being like haha I love knowing thats me.

 

Basically what im trying to say is, If it's done it will be seen, alot of people I know walk and explore things for the sake of finding something new. Abandoned rail lines, buildings, wooded lots. Gems are found everywhere.

Yeah, I love thinking, "why the fuck am I here, why was this other dude here?"

I don't sleep on spots like that, I think its nice to be able to rock something for the one person who might see it. Whether you write for writers or the whole community, if you hit a spot like you're talking about, you're writing for the few folks who might look in that spot, whoever they may be... I think that shit is dope...

sure hitting spots that are highly visable are cool as hell to see .

 

but i like the shit you have to search for. almost all of the times i have ended up underground somewhere i have seen some of the best works from writers that will only be seen in pictures, if they are taken.

 

a year ago i wound up in a tunnel for a drainage ditch and saw a big ass mural with characters depicting the apaocolypse and the writers name done in a sick ass water color style...i had never seen that style of painting before in my life. i sat there for an hour or so just staring at it.

 

or shit like hitting up underneath a bus seat with a streak, or putting stickers under fuse boxes not only garuntees that shit stays , it also adds to how much you have gotten up*

yes and no.....it depends on the situation. I like my stuff to out in the open mainly-but I also like to hit spots in the cut-stuff that most people wouldn't see unless you were there for a reason.....

I like to walk around and catch tags in weird obscure spots. I always date them too, so in 20 years when they are still there people will know whats up.

bring lots of rusto.....the dampness is a bit like painting on a semi wet brick wall, it takes about ten minutes for a fill with one coat to dry. but you can take your time

Urban exploration with a modern day twist.

 

That means I dig wandering around in weird places and letting the two other people that will come through the same spot in the next few months know that I was there also.

i learned to tag backwards a long time ago..i tagged hand dryers in bathrooms or trash cans that were in view of the mirror in front of the sink so you could see my tag in the mirror...heh, must've grabbed a few peoples attention >_<
