Painting on Bates’s birthday in New Jersey
Bates, one of the most influential and consistent writers in the world, put together this video covering some of his travels from 1997 to present. My personal favorite it the buses of children in Malmö, Sweden showing up to Bates’ private hall of fame to check out his work…

Being a graffiti writer. The kind of writer that Dennis Hopper thought was relevant, all while trying to maintain that idea you have of what a “real” writer is. Skipping the height of your art opening to attempt 7 minute backjumps, running away and failing, and being stupid enough to try the same spot the following night. Not like I can show everything I do on this blog anymore. You knowing how much of a supermodel I am prevents that business from going down these days. This strategy to get ahead with something that is defined by most as a dead end. Something that must be flipped and vaguely referenced in past tense. I love graffiti, but not that type that makes that flat screen TV money. I do like getting over and having fun. Business or street hustle. Persuasion and confidence. I like embracing the idea of being poor even though I am not anymore. I do own a few pairs of sunglasses. Word… Some photos from Berlin while we were out promoting The Exchange project book-
