what do you mean if it wasnt for him graff wouldn't have existed? Are you mental? Graffiti is an italian word for "scratch". It has been around since biblical times, even rome couldn't escape it, as rival political factions wrote slogans and insults to each other through out the streets. Oh, nice TAKI flick. My old Junior high library had that wierd hip hop book with that flick in it.:confused:

i could be wrong on this one, but from what i hear, taki was nothing other than one of a thousand writers that happend to get lucky and have an article written about him. he was never a 'founding father' just another kid with a marker. which isnt to take anything away from him at all, but saying that he started the movement of graffiti is a disservice to those people who actually did...
