Old news if you live in New York City’s hoods…

“I wanted to help people. But civililian Population are being hunted. Instead of being protected by us, they are being hunted, and we are being hated” –  honest NYPD cop (11:29)…

NYC/ Brooklyn Gang Graffiti

Filed under: Graffiti, Photography | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

After aborting my Los Angeles relocation a few years ago, I thought along with the gang driven drive-by shootings and talk of “colors”, I’d also be leaving the accompanying  graffiti. Well, maybe not so quick. Seems that New York has been getting its fair share of gang turf wars as evident on the streets of Brooklyn…





PosterBoy and Aakash Nihalani (Street Art Co-existing With Graffiti)

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..

R.I.P. SURE (ATM, HAA, 156)
December 8, 2010, 6:24 am
Filed under: Art, Graffiti | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,


Just heard that SURE (ATM, HAA, 156), half of the duo “SURE + FAUST”, has been killed while in the line of duty in Afghanistan at the age of 25. If you’ve been around lower Manhattan (or all of New York for that matter) in the last few years, you’ve surely (no pun intended) seen his over saturation of stickers. And these aren’t the (so trendy right now) printed vinyl stickers, these are all hand done with some of the dopest handstyles in the graffiti world. I met him briefly last year (He actually caught me getting up. Classic.). We talked for a minute and exchanged some stickers. Seemed like a genuine cool dude. He’ll definitely be missed. Rest In Peace.






Check SURE out in Martha Cooper‘s book “Name Tagging” and read an interview with him at Mark Batty Publishing.
