i might feel threatened

Recommended Posts

Guest beardo

so i was flipping through my flick book the other day, and came accross a photo that i find myself stopping on often. for whatever reason i stopped and pondered a bit longer this time. examining it for a while, and making several strange thought associations, i came to the conclusion that this is my favorite graff related photo.

the best example i can give as to why i made that conclusion is in a comment i made to joker the other day. (it has no connection to the picture i discuss today, other than it being a good vehicle for the explaination)

 

"i might feel threatened by your stylistic superiority if you were a human"

 

that is why i like this photo so much. the top 3/4 displays that classic inhuman joker skill, all the way down to how its centered to the design on the linoleum tiles...of course.

 

however, its the bottom 1/4 of this photo what kills me. home boy caught his feet. this is endlessly amusing to me. here we are, looking at some amazing artwork, but whats that poking in at the bottom? thats right, a cute little pair of red stripped booty socks (little bit of stain on the big toe). makes it a bit more human dont it. very reassuring.

 

if you've ever hung out with the guy, youd know that this photo perfectly captures the joker. astronomical abitlity, conveniently packaged in human form.

whats your favorite graff related photo? doesnt have to be your favorite piece, im looking for a flick that captures more than just the art on the wall.

Really good topic Beardo,

I always take photos of the process of whatever i do.

It always reminds me it was i who did that.

The final flick of something or the thing it self always seems so far away,almost frozen.

This is a process photo of a canvas i did sometime ago, whenever i see that pick i feel good with my self (thats a rare feeling around here) and i feel threatened in a way cause it reminds me that i've been better than i am. All that in a sence of optimism.

 

Also i edit cause i am such an egopathic pig that i forgot to mention what i really enjoy in this photo.

I like the fact that this process flick shows me how there is science behind everything.People tend to admire beautifull things and appreciate style and skill as a birthgiven bless to the one that may posses(sp?) it.

Its half that way,hard work and analysis exists behind everything.

Donniefrisco- those pics are awesome. That's a muni tunnel i assume? Ive only seen them from inside a muni car, but i've been wondering about how and when one could get in there to see the pieces up close. Could you e-mail me about it? If not i understand
