Some folks got together under the city and threw a happening party in an unfinished part of NYC’s subway system. Some graffiti that was done there in early 2000 catches off in some of the party pics. In 2000 there was nothing down there but bare walls and space, glad it’s gone to some good use. See the whole story and photos at Gothamist.com
Thrown into the freestyle pot…
Over the weekend the young kids at our wall put us on to the Harlem Shake. Having never heard of the trend or heard song that gets used, we went in anyway.
For the first wall clip we were listening to The Who’s “I Can See For Miles” playing from a car stereo
Big dude in black was not in on it, just wanted a shake.
Some photos from a cold and snowy tour from Sacramento to New York with road soldiers Persue and Mason. Along the way making stops in Reno, Salt Lake City, Lincoln (Nebraska), Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and finally to NYC…
The other day TATS crew organized a 21 man, pre Halloween wall out in the Hunts Point area. It had all the ingredients of a graffiti jam minus a DJ set up and break dancers. When anyone turned up to paint they were told to pull a numbered paper out of a bag. That number marked the section of the wall you were painting. It was cool meeting and painting with many writers who I have come up being influenced by.
The turn out: BIO, JEM, NICER, DAZE, BEOND, KAVES, SAMP, CRASH, MARK BODE, DERO, SHANK, YES2, TOPER, CES, SHAME 125, INKIE,YO, WANE, BG183, HEN and a few others…
About a week ago I received some really cool sketches of my name by New York’s HAZE.
Many thanks to Klughaus Gallery for setting up the wall.
