Welcome to the park behind my block… It’s a strange one with no sense when you are in it… It could be a maze but it isn’t and in the same time it’s still dope…
You just show the world that without all the crap of marketing anything worth… Not even 60 bucks!
Common so many people pass by and nobody knows! I don’t say I would have been more clever but take one thing outside of its environment and it worth nothing…
Nothing worth nothing at the end of the day… even some of the most wanted art on the planet!
Resistance is an Australian hardcover publication compiled of images that document the methods and practices of graffiti culture, not focussing solely on the art itself. This book delves into the endeavours that typically can only be experienced, taking you personally through the adventure. Both the documented images in this book and in this short clip are taken from a singular Australian photographer. This clip shows insight into the contents of the book and the lifestyle led.
A view on the writer not on his art… I like that!
The streets have taken over art…
It was the beginning, it was still a game and fun was the initial idea… For sure vandalism but it was to exist… I love graffiti and tag as long as you work on your signature or message by a way or another…
Can’t wait to see this documentary… its facebook page
Cool concept of Graffiti made by a lego in stop motion… Dope!
Always the grain of rice in your shoes… see some of his last work in this second installment…
I just quote the clip description because I couldn’t say it better:
Legendary photographer Martha Cooper has been documenting graffiti and graffiti writers since the late 1970s. Her and Henry Chalfant’s book “Subway Art”, originally published in 1984, was largely responsible for the globalization of graffiti. She has remained a fixture in the community and culture, and has been documenting the Wynwood Walls since the project began in 2009. Her photos tell the story of the Wynwood Walls from its inception to expansion, and all of the artists and their respective works. In graffiti and street art, nothing is permanent, even commissioned walls. Because of the temporary nature of the medium, Martha’s photos outlast almost every piece of graffiti or street art itself.
