DUA Boys – ‘Nothing But Good Memories’

They say that a graffiti writer’s second hobby is photography. Since it’s the only way to immortalize the action, virtually all writers become accustomed to photographing their work, especially when it comes to pieces, and if they’re on trains, even more so. This is the topic at hand in this video made by the DUA Boys crew, in which they explain to us about the relationship between graffiti and photography, their boundaries, and also what it represents according to their own perspective.
It’s the prefect excuse to accompany Zombie and Money on some of their trips and experiences, the majority of which occur in Italy, and enjoy their impeccable productions done in their jaw dropping style. This short documentary gives us a gift in the form of first class pieces, unique anecdotes, and above all, a lot of excitement and empathy, while at the same time offering us a moment for reflection on the meaning of graffiti and its rituals.

There is something mythological about the first generation of Copenhagen graffiti painters. Back in the early eighties a handful of pioneers foundation for a subculture that ever since has had a special place in Copenhagen as well as in the rest of the country.

The inspiration came from New York, which is the art form cradle, but it was not long before the Danish heirs found their own stylistic expression – aided by an almost unheard of talent that got peers in other European cities to look enviously at the pieces that appeared along the railway and on the red mailbox commuter trains.

On the sidelines stood writer Disk – then a 13-year-old boy from the province – during a summer holiday in Copenhagen he snapped the first images of underground graffiti book COPENHAGEN GRAFFITI 1985-2016, which has just been published. Today he has been active as a graffiti artist in more years than most younger writers even existed, and he continued to photograph the pieces in and around Copenhagen, always with analog camera.
