If I was good enough to paint in high-traffic areas, I don't think I would be worried about anyone other than cops seeing me because if it's REALLY a good spot, then you're probably going to be seen anyways.

 

If it's a big worry to you, you could always stake out a spot for a half hour or so before you paint... I don't see what the problem would be with that?

If sum hero wants to chase you threaten to spray them in the eyes with your paint, they will soon stop and prob call the po po but by the time they arrive you will be long gone...

man it depends some people are crazy... i was hittin up a rooftop and i had on a mime mask.. little kid looks up and goes "hey mommy look its a mime".. mom was like it is a mime dad was like is that a guy up there?... fucking pulled out her phone so i finished up, and jumped off... another time i was also puttin up stickers for shits and giggs and didnt see this guy.. he chased me down the street in gym pants... just do it fast & get out try and have a look out and scope out the spot before hand for cameras..and etc... dont wear bright clothes. even if they do call the cops you should be gone by the time they arrive. ive herd storys of people being chased by heroes.. one time a writer got chased by some guy in a car had to run into the woods... just depends. oh and another time i was doing a throwie in this alley way behind a mexican food place nd the dude came out i guess he was smoking and i was in a hoody and bandanna.. as i finished he was like.. a few feet away and he just said "you come back here and do this at night?"... i was like yeah and took off.. caught me completely off guard he watching me the whole time i guess..

my philosophy is that if you act legit are you are legit... anytime i've been seen, if i dont acknowledge the fact that I see someone there, usually they just walk on by, if I acknowledge the person seein me, it usually turns into something happening and me getting out of there. stay safe and stay aware of your surroundings.

My last piece I did, i was under some bridge. There was some chick there smoking pot, so I figured it didn't matter.

Usually don't care as I paint at night.

When I do go and paint a legal during the day though I hate people coming up and asking me what I'm doing, if it's legal, is it hard, etc..

I Was bombing with my crew one time in some tunnels and we were suuppppeeeerrrr far in so if someone was standing at the end they literally looked like they were an inch tall. While we were starting we were mixing cans and what not someone walked to the end of the tunnel and yelled "HEY!" we all almost shit our pants. Then we hear "ARE YOU GUYS SMOKING?"... turns out it was some stoner trying to get some free tokes. We all thought it was some rent a city worker trying to like lock us up or charge us XD. Fun times. Fun times. I have gotten to learn though.. the only people you really need to look out for are the city workers and the cops. Practically everyoone else thinks that the urban art is cool. I like to keep a good rep on my alter ego.. i do this by like not putting "bad" words in my art or anything. This has made the city want to kind of keep our work around.

I was doing a picture of DICKCHICKEN, a chicken with a dick for a head. n a man and his 12(-) daughter came over, and I turned around in the middle of laughing. I was like OH SHIT! I'M SO SORRY FOR WRITTING THIS IN FRONT OF YOUR DAUGHTER. The dude is like, oh no, its cool, we've just never seen anyone spray paint before. O_o KEEP IT UP!

i try not to be seen, because cats like to snitch out here. but usually as long as its not cops and shit then you're straight. you can usually tell if a civilian is gonna become a snitch. just by their behavior after seeing you. just dip out after your done and hit another area while shit cools down..

 

fools trip too much on being spotted though. you are gonna get spotted eventually, especially if you do street spots or highway spots. i'd say like 8 out of 10 times people won't say shit and keep it moving.

Any time I've been seen people just walk past. At 3am people really can't be bothered trying to tell some guy to stop spraying paint. You get the odd comment, but it's usually in good taste. My area is alright for it. I suppose people are probably just appreciative to see graffiti that isn't gang related though.

Man, I was in an alleyway one night painting around 1A.M. and this group of teenagers saw me, and you know, normal paranoia set it so I jumped a bit and looked at them, then they started running away, and ever since then, I realized when most of the stereotypical society sees someone with a mask on spraying paint at a wall, they're going to be naturally scared. I just figure as long as I stay out of sight as much as possible, and don't act like an idiot when seen, it'll probably be alright. Best to stay on your toes though.
