Rime Stylin on them...

Graffiti // Friday, November 09, 2012
Rimes got all kind of funky styles and aint scared to show them off on a number of surfaces all around everywhere.

Freight Train Riders of America

Graffiti // Friday, November 09, 2012
Are you familiar with this Daniel Boone? No, it’s not the American explorer who became a folk hero; it’s the FTRA‘s (A homeless railroad gang) founder. The gang was featured on America’s Most Wanted when Robert Joseph Silveria Jr. aka “The Boxcar Killer” or “Sidetrack” was suspected of murder. He later confessed to 28 murders and is serving a double life sentence. Rare marking on the side of a boxcar

90's San Francisco Pit

Graffiti // Friday, November 09, 2012
Not that long ago, San Francisco had an abundance of pits looking similar to this photograph. Graffiti once strived in these pits. Now large condos exist in their place, plaguing the visual landscape of the City by the Bay. We miss the pits.

Purge...

Graffiti // Friday, November 09, 2012
In an effort to understad where Purge originates from, we bring you Wikipedia’s definition, “In history, religion, and political science, a purge is the removal of people who are considered undesirable by those in power from a government, from another organization, or from society as a whole. Purges can be peaceful or violent; many will end with the imprisonment or exile of those purged, but in some cases they will simply be removed from office. Restoring people who have been purged is known as rehabilitation.

Pear Domination

Graffiti // Thursday, November 08, 2012
There is a lot being said right here and it’s very bold and reads loudly. Pear taking back spots in Detroit.

Saucy Sofles

Graffiti // Thursday, November 08, 2012
This piece reminds us of what jellyfish would like cooking on top of hot coals.  Is that a stretch?  It’s really good, that’s for sure.

Steady Floatin...

Graffiti // Thursday, November 08, 2012
In person, this spot really grabs your attention. It’s just astounding that graffiti writers have found ways to hover on the sides of building and paint pieces.

Honke...

Graffiti // Thursday, November 08, 2012
As Wikipedia explains, “Honke (???) is the main household of Japanese family. The head of a household and his successor reside in the honke, while collateral branches establish bunke. The honke-bunke relationship is also reflected in the relationship between Japanese companies and their subsidiaries.

Scarlett Johansson tattooed by Fuzi UVTPK

Graffiti // Wednesday, November 07, 2012
Like many others, Scarlett Johansson’s lonely and curious role in Lost in Translation won me over, forever crushing on the mesmerizing actress. Her more recent undertakings have not been movies, modeling, or singing, but tattoo collecting. Recently in Paris, the actress stopped by Le Salon to get inked up by Parisian graffiti writer and tattoo artist, Fuzi. The words  “Lucky You” with a horseshow now occupy the mega-babes ribcage and while Fuzi’s artwork is awesome, we have to ask, why?
