Chaos Warehouse

Graffiti // Friday, August 17, 2012
“When you play the game to win…Somebody’s feeling are going to get hurt.” Chaos is definitely winning in the graffiti department, that’s a fact.

Hindue Signature

Graffiti // Friday, August 17, 2012
You have been writing your signature your entire life, funny how most of the time it gets sloppier and less legible over time. When I sign a contract or check or anything else, it takes about 3 seconds and looks like garbage. Hindue’s intention with his signature may be different from mine, but appears he is getting better with each one.

Chuck

Graffiti // Friday, August 17, 2012
Writers that use common traditional American names for their tag like Eric, Dave, or better yet, Chuck make us think that once in a while that is actually their birth given name. We have known a few writers who have gotten bored with their “fake” name and started writing their real one. Good luck trying to deny that name when you’re caught.

New Zoerism Piece

Graffiti // Thursday, August 16, 2012
We have been keeping an eye on Zoer and for good reason, he has a unique approach to lettering and his rendering of all things related to transportation vehicles is impressive. This newest piece in Copenhagen shows a great perspective of the interior and exterior of a barge ship.

Sawe

Graffiti // Thursday, August 16, 2012
Sawe is creating some our favorite graffiti right now. We were really impressed with the video he animated with Concrete Wall Project and his approach to this here graffiti thing just looks fun.

Noway Dude...

Graffiti // Thursday, August 16, 2012
Those rusty brown hoppers make for a great canvas when using bright colors. This Noway piece is popping off loudly. Put some glasses on, too bright!  Wonder what the life span is for those colors before they start muting and fading.

Unwanted Attention
