Guess – Creeping around on walls


Check this video out that the Nyorkers.com have published!
Creeping around on walls, doorways and service boxes in the city are Guess tags and stickers. Look around you. They’re there. They’ve been making their appearance for about two decades now. For some, graffiti is what they look for, for some it’s a nuisance and others never even knew it was there. But it is and there is a story behind it. There are zombies walking through the city everyday- people moving from point A to point B with no joy or reason other than that’s what they were told to do. For me, seeing stylish tags by someone who has been practicing their craft for years is another little reminder that we are here and alive and some of us are still motivated by things other than money.

Reebok Classic introduces Wane for the City Classics Collection


Wane_COD_Graffiti_NYC_2 Wane_COD_Graffiti_NYC_1Wane is a legendary figure in the NYC graffiti scene who is a natural story teller. Wane had hours of stories to tell about growing up and painting in the 80’s that covered all aspects of the graffiti, and wider hip-hop scene. Rumours, facts, dangers and style are all covered. Wane’s stories are presented as a series of spoken vignettes set against super-8 footage of Wane painting and moving through the modern city. Shooting the film on a small Super-8 camera allows to blend in with WANE as jumped on and off the tracks and moved through yards and in between trains during the shoot. The Super-8 provided a grainy film texture to the final piece that speaks to the era WANE brings to life in his words and the unique wild style that adorns his collaborative Classic Leather 30th Anniversary sneaker dedicated to the city of NYC.
