First thing you noticed

Recommended Posts

Graff really caught my eye when I first started going to hardcore shows in about 98-99,the places I went to were covered with handstyles..never thought it would become such a large part in my life.

the first graff i ever really noticed was when i was younger going back home to philladelphia every summer...taking the speedline into the city and seeing all these weird, scary ass marks that i couldnt read everywhere....got alittle older, living down south, lots of gang graffiti caught my attention...from then on, i learned alot more about this shit that i have a love/hate relationship with...

i remember a tag when i was like 4 years old, looked almost like my real name, only 1 letter difference, since then ive been "tagging" my school books with my own name , then when i was like 14 i started to do real graffiti letters etc.

Re: 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

 

:D

 

 

thats wat got me writing i was from boston now im in ashland right next to framingham and i would always see that piece

in a drainage ditch that tunnelled under the street i grew up on. it was just a marker hit up that said "Michael was here". i wasnt diagnosed with the graffiti disease until much later but i remember being really intrigued by it.

the first day i rode the subway i noticed Cope2 and GatoRIS fillins everywhere. Jon156, Sane and Smith had taken over the D's with huge clover green throw ups. Then a few weeks later

i got on a train that had the windows covered and this poor hasidic jewish dude missed his stop because of it. those are my first conscious memories of graffiti.

ha im still a toy, but i remember, when i was about 5, i was riding my bike, and i saw this huge graff throw, but then i didnt care what it said. anyway, i got out my watercolor markers and drew a big X on the wall, ruined my marker, after 15 minutes of waiting for the cops NOT to come I did another with another color. I went back the next day and it was gone. I felt so hardcore, even though it was gone. hahaha. then when i turned 13, i was at my grams house and i saw a huge piece on the side of a train that read "feria", ever since then iive been obsessed with graff.

The highways on the way to the mall,there was this legde, i later learned, it was by worker (waste, rsk) Ewok and Ultra.. i didnt know shit though at that time, 92 or so, then a year or two latter i was just always coming in contact with it, first an issue of the source in study hall in middle school, i remember arab and roach flicks, i lost my mind i had never seen a nyc subway train painted before, but it wasnt untill i saw americas most wanted a few weeks later where they profiled the up and comming problem of tag banging that i was actually inspired to venture out out to the highway and jump on on a guardrail and hit a sign, ( i think i probally had a sharrpie though!!) after that going to buy trees in the hood i saw locals such as Sel rsk, Gzabel, power rsk, Rue, Sop, and GA nsk from brklyn, who i latter met on the street in bk.. funny to think john walsh gave me that xtra push..:p

First time i saw graffiti wuz on the side of a frieght comin through NokeTwon, 540. I didn't think nuthin of it, I was a lil' geek in like, 5th grade thinkin that's just what happens to old shit that sits in one place to long;: punks paint it. But then I developed soul in middle school and started to feel the art, ya know? I played this game... Jetset for XBOX, it wuz pretty ill, it had inline techno and graff and i was a fan of the first two, as I looked through the library of graff art in the game (actually pretty decent even lookin back) I realized how sic it wuz, and how it was related to the scribble on the trains, and how they both came from the same culture that brought me hip-hop and electronica and finally a fusion of the two, it all meshed so well. I wuz always puttin up rebel political posters in middle-school, but I didn't know that wuz graff-related. Now whevener I'm sittin at a crossing and i see a sic piece roll by on a heavy-ass frieght, it's like a fuckin treat. I saw an OBEY giant poster on a lamp post in a parking lot the other day and it made my day.
