Sometimes the creative urge can strike when least prepared. Like when on the subway.. but don’t even have a pen. So gotta use what’s available. Here’s some text message art/writings/stories I’ve been putting together on those rides…

Pretty cool that we now have all these fancy video camera/cell phones to capture a fraction of the oppression served to us from our authorities. But what I like to see more than the video “evidence” is people just FIGHTING BACK…

If street artists want to co-exist and be accepted by the graffiti world, there’s an old graffiti rule that they should understand. “DO NOT GO OVER OTHER PEOPLE.” ESPECIALLY if it’s bigger, better, or old. Sure those tags and those filled in “throw up” letters DO make a nice looking background to your street art. But that graffiti was there FIRST. It might not seem like much, but those letters were done on the spot with risk of arrest, possibly by someone from another city/country , a king, or even a RIPed writer’s last artifact. Undoubtedly potential historic pieces in the graffiti world. You CAN NOT go over them. Go BEHIND them? Hmm.. Maaaybe? ..If it’s done respectfully. This is a pic I took in Bushwick back in 2009..
“Give respect, Get respect.”
