Mike Francisco (1969-2000), known by his graffiti name Dream, was a true pioneer in the Bay Area graffiti scene and beyond.  Dream believed that there was power in the message, a mental liberation in writing, and continually focused on issues of police brutality, national liberation, racism, and rebellion. We stumbled on this video of a young Dream being interviewed at  "No Justice, No Peace" art show opening in Oakland.  A charismatic character that remains influential in style and innovation.
