In 1984, inspired by the ‘Wild Style’ and Styles Wars’ films, artists like Bates, Sek, Rens, CMP and Swet got interested in graffiti in the Freez style. This generation of young street artists is still going strong creating new works to this day.
The king of swing “Swet” and Chemistry Publishing transformed a massive collection of painted walls and sketches together to a hand-bound book. In the last 15-20 years Swet painted around 300 walls a year but when you got the idea to make a book focussed on one year one piece a day becomes a goal.
This is our new photo series called Wednesday Walls! We will post a pile of walls every wednesday sent in by our contributors world wide.
