THE SOURCE GRAF FLIX BY CHINO

Recommended Posts

had all but 2 of them issues..

Use to be where I'm from, it was about our only "source" for graff flicks.

No scene, no graff mags, no internet shit, nothen.

But I use to stare at them flicks for days, and to this day they are still good selections.

I also remember getting the graff issue of Rap Pages in like 96 or 97 I think.

That had more flicks. Wish I still had the copy to.

CHINO:

In 1994, I began working with The Source magazine as the editor of the “Graf Flix section,” a monthly one-page pictorial located in the back of the magazine that featured graffiti. From the very beginning The Source was reluctant to fuse graffiti with the monthly content, so for the first few months we did the column with the understanding that it could get dropped at any moment.

 

“Graf Flix” soon became one of the more popular sections in the magazine. The column eventually grew into its own section of the magazine called “Bomb Shelter.” I soon had 4-5 pages monthly, two pages for photos and at least another two pages to feature graffiti relevant articles (profiles, Q&As, book/VHS/DVD reviews, products, obituaries). I can honestly say prior to this you couldn’t find graffiti in ANY other popular mainstream print magazines.
