Please explain to me what achieve solutions means? Graffiti is illegal and for vandals. People that want to sketch graffiti and do legal walls are welcome to it. For the rest, you take a chance at arrest every tag you throw up.

 

 

Looking for some kind of harmony between community and graffiti writers? seriously?

what kind of toy ass writer are you that you get happy about an arrest? jail should not be wished upon even for your worst enemy...

im not happy, im just saying karma's a bitch, he puts his name out there like that. and hes bound to get arrested. eventually, your going to get caught if you keep doing it. no disrespect to him, just humorous considering how long that cats been in the game.

i volunteered to speak at the muralsdc discussion panel but dpw turned me down becuz of recent arrest. all due respect to CON, but i thought there should be at least one dc street bomber there.

 

and honestly, graf writers should be FROM the community, so maybe they should care ABOUT the community. its just our views about whats good for the community may not line up with what the powers that be think. since my arrest ive had a huge amount of support from everyday people in community who love graf. theyre not interested in murals of flowers and houses and want to see real graf and think the laws are stupid. and i mean middle-aged homeowners, hipster bartenders, mothers with kids... we're in the middle of an entire generation that grew up w hip hop and graffiti and doesnt demonize it the way lawmakers do. i dont think all types of graffiti will ever be legal, but i would like to see more legal opportunities for graf artists to really interact w their own community artistically... fuck the lawmakers. if grassroots community members want to see my work for real (and not watered down), im gonna work w them to do it...
