First thing you noticed

Recommended Posts

Hey all you goons and goonettes out there in cyber land. What was the very first time you noticed Graffiti and what did you notice first. For example I first noticed giant colorful fillin's and insides on Bronx trains in 1975 or 76 on our way to Grandma's apt.

Who beat who?

 

To whom are you refering? Me myself and I or SERG? Let me make this clear I may have noticed graffiti at that time but I didn't pick up a can for the purpose of bombin until the end of 1984, into 85. Ahhhhhhh the 80's. Rockkkkkkkkkkkk on forever. Huh? Well thanks for listening anyway, i'll be going now.........

 

Peace:D

Beat Street/Breakin

 

The first time I reallly noticed it was in Beat Street/Breakin Movies. I tried writing then but at the tender age of 8 there is only so much wreck you can catch before the street lights came on.

Funny you should ask...

YOU!!!

Heh heh...

The day I was inspired to pick up a can, it was from walking the train tracks through this tunnel. There was a Monk piece at one end, a Sick/Pone duo piece at the other, and a whole bunch of nice shit in between. I had seen graffiti before, out of the corner of my eye, but nothing that really jumped out and grabbed me by the eyeballs. Within the week I had a name and my first wack 3D sketch drawn up, and started getting busy. I later changed my name to disguise the wackness, as many do, but I never looked back.

If you're the Pone I'm thinking of, then you were part of the day I got converted. I should probably buy you a beer...or some prunes.

Sick/Pone

 

Are you from Beantown? I did a nice piece up in Framingham with Sick back in 1995 thereaboutz. I didn't know there was a tunnel up there. Yeah but Sick is peeps a 156 Guru all the way live and direct.

 

I'm glad I was one of the instraments that corrupted you into a lifestyle of chaos and mayhem. Yes a Guiness ale would be nice if you get around to the liquor store. Hit me off witha a fleamail and we'll chat

 

Peace Love and Deoderant

sometime in the late 80's i saw some work in a park up in rochester, ny. it was pretty, the fall leaves were blowing around and there were all these vibrant colors on the walls of this tunnel that went under something. i didn't pick up any cans because of it or anything, but it left an impression.
