Tribute to graffiti writer Norm.
Buster and Fikor goes at night for catching some tags and throw-ups along highways and streets.
Making it clear that if you’re going to risk it to paint a good piece. Once again the stage is the city of Monterrey and the mission is in charge of Buster who comments: Sometimes you just say today is the day I go on the mission, and everything is perfect, I’m not much into planning or to talk to someone to accompany me, I just like to take my cameras and capture a good shot in the heights because the level of adrenaline is the maximum and that’s where I think graffiti looks better.
Have you ever wondered how the first issue of Underground Productions looked like!? Well here it is, recorded by Betongliv.com! The magazine was released in 1991 in Stockholm, Sweden and did exist until 2012!
Times change, and with them the graffiti scene. It’s been 23 years since UP’s first issue hit the streets. When we started in the spring of 1992, shortly after the very first Swedish graffiti magazines Trains/Sniart and Kilroy, there was no internet nor hardly any books about graffiti. All information, images and interviews, were worth their weight in gold. Anyone who sat on contacts to writers in other cities and countries ruled. The graffiti magazines arose from an existing net work of photo traders that spread images and information in and outside of the scene. After only a few weeks after number 1 came out we received letters from readers in Australia.
Interest was high for what happened in other places. In Sweden we sold graffiti magazines from all over the world and abroad people asked for Swedish magazines.
