Graffiti // Wednesday, January 29, 2014
"I took the original photograph that inspired the Partner in Crime series under a bridge near Yosemite National Park in California. There were layers of civilian graffiti on the wall and we decided to add some of our own. My friend Lauren had never used a spray can before and took a turn. I shot a few photos while she sprayed and I didn’t look at them for another year or so. I remember vividly how wide her smile was and how ecstatic she was after doing it. "

Popularized during World War 1 by Italian and German pilots, Nose Art was the practice of personalizing your fighting aircraft. Commonly, these paintings were on the fuselage and were painted by civilian artists, and talented amateur servicemen. Often the imagery was scantily clad women accompanied by a witty pun. TheFlopBox recently released a limited edition zine titled “The Bitch’s Sister” that highlights Nose Art from found photographs.

Walking up to a quiet fire pit and a room full of the leading artists in San Francisco's underground scene was perhaps the best way to come home after a long week in Miami for Art Basel.
