Write4Gold 2006

Recommended Posts

im not defining shit.... what is graffiti? its an illegal act, it is painting or writing yourn name on a wall or anything for the matter, but without permission. Thats wat it is to me and many others. Thats a big difference. Otherwise its art with graffiti in mind. I dont know if theres an american level, but u check out the website and tell me where the venue is listed... its mostly euro plain and simple.

 

honestly, i like graff shows, but the really small ones that u hear about it from someone or maybe at most theres a flyer. keep it underground, u dont sponsors and mainstreem shit to paint on a wall and let people watch and to add to that you dont even need to judge peoples level of writing, people need to do it for themselves. it kinda kills the morals..... might aswell make team jerseys and shit and get it on t.v.

is there an australian event in the works?

 

i think this stuff is a killer idea, if you dont consider it graffiti then thats cool, doesnt mean it shouldnt be done. fact of the matter is that this sort of thing requires an entirely different angle to participate as opposed to illegal graffiti. saying this shit isnt 'real graffiti' is like saying dondi wasnt a 'real writer' because he sold work in galleries.

thing is that the people who organise this sort of thing create or have created illegal graffiti (i am assuming) and the people who participate in the event must have attained their skills somewhere, so im sure they have been involved in the shady side aswell.

the moment you start saying graffiti has this precise definition is the moment it ceases to be what it is. when heads first started writing on walls and creating pieces i doubt they sat down and wrote up a dictionary definition of 'keeping it real' back then i think it was just kids having fun. then if you want to come back with how it has evolved into something else, well this event is just a further evolution.

lincoln freed the slaves

armstrong walked on the moon

why should graffiti maintain boundaries?

I don't think that graff has to evolve further in terms of commercialism. It sucks already, at least here in the EU. Besides that, you should do your history homework :gaga:

:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

 

 

i really don't think we should be sticking graffiti into the same realm as the freeing of the slaves or walking on the moon.

 

 

 

jesus christ.

 

 

 

graffiti is a bastard art, and it is represented in its purest form by the people that go out at night and fuck shit up. Write for Gold is awesome and all, and it captures the artistic aesthetic for graffiti, but by definition is not "graffiti". It is a "folk art" as someone mentioned above.

 

this is not to say i have any less respect for legal walls, especially those on the level as the ones in write for gold.

 

 

 

legality takes the term 'graffiti' out of it.

its great to see how in europe they can get things together like this. all of the graffiti paint is made in europe, trafitional letter styles that look like old school train writing from NY...I think the trains there keep it live, and all the US crews mentioned dont have that element. i want to move to europe. america has jams but generally they are small and cater to cliques.

 

when there is an american venue will it be regional...like mid east coast , south east, north east.....etc....the us is big so.....

If you look at the rest of the wall theres not a single drip on it. I'm sure those dudes got exactly the look they wanted on that production, including drips. I've seen Bingo's stuff before, he bombs some nice stuff.
