Graffiti // Monday, October 28, 2013
Last week we shared a video documenting the work of sign artist, David A Smith, explaining that while it is not technically graffiti, it’s focus is centered on lettering, which at the core is really graffiti. Jeff Canham is a sign painter from San Francisco who has been featured in our magazine and recently painted a series of signs working with Stussy for their “Stussy Livin’ General Store.” In this new video, you can watch Canham elegantly paint traditional lettering, something most graffiti writers could or should appreciate.
