Podcast #020 – Cantwo (German Language)

Cantwo started graffiti in his home town of Budenheim (near Mainz) in 1983 and joined the then very small graffiti scene via the hip hop movement. Already in the eighties he was networked all over Germany, in Munich or Hamburg, but also in Dortmund or Heidelberg. After a short break in the late eighties and early nineties, Cantwo moved to Hamburg and made old contacts with Jase or Hesh. The rest – everything you know from him in the nineties – is history. Anyone who works with him and graffiti will know how active Cantwo was on many levels then and still is today.

Ilovegraffiti met Cantwo in Dortmund for podcast number 20 to talk a little about various topics that they currently find relevant. Starting with his activities on the social media channels, digital graffiti and nostalgia to the clear separation from graffiti on trains, especially in the nineties. A part of his life that, at least from this perspective, has never been a topic in public. We talked to Cantwo about it and a lot more, have fun listening and until the next podcast.

The Rise of Graffiti Writing – From New York To Europe (6/10) Wild Style Goes Europe | 1982 – 1983

“Wild Style!” spills over the Atlantic, puts Europe in bright hip-hop enthusiasm and infects the continent with the graffiti virus. In this episode, representatives of the English and German scene such as Can2, 3D and Pride talk about the unimaginable influence of the film, which started as an underground Klamotte and quickly became the mouthpiece for a new subculture. In ten episodes, the documentary series traces the rise of the graffiti movement: from New York in the 1970s to Amsterdam and Paris to Munich, from where the graffiti virus infected Europe from the 1980s onwards.
