Video: Classic footage of Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant

Graffiti // Thursday, July 19, 2012
Classic video footage recently emerged documenting photographers, Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, during the time they were documenting the subway graffiti scene in New York. The narrator and his slang explanations are worth a laugh. As the narrator states, “Putting spray paint on a subway car is illegal and masterpieces do not “light up the line” for long.  They will be “buffed off” by the transit authority or “ragged” written over by other graffiti writers.”

Hindue

Baer Black Metal

Multiple concertgoers received head exploding punches, while Jesus was crowd surfing with a scared look on his face and the Devil was seen puking and hanging on to a naked girl. You should have been there. The black metal band known as, Baer really does put on a memorable show.

Mecro Train Homage Piece

Mecro’s name pops up plenty if you keep your eyes on the trains and from this wall it shows he has an appreciation and passion for train culture. The rust effect on this wall similar to that of the weathering of freights is on point!
