yeah thats fame. a need for attention. and a desperate yeaning to be remembered cause you know you aint shit otherwise.

when i was a lil kid and we would move from apot. to apt. i would always cave my name inside closets and my favorite climbing trees.

kids taht dont have stable homes end up writing alot, cause the "i was here" mentality.


its a sickness and anyone thats up has it i think

For an ego boost, the adrenaline from hitting heaty spots, and just the motivation of trying to be even half as good as some of the most well known bombers, watching vids with them hitting heaty spots makes me want to go out and top what they did.

why should we have to justify why we wrtie? does it really matter that much. I swear I&#39;m just gonna stop reading threads like this. And for the last time, it&#39;s not called "GRAFFING", it&#39;s called "WRITING".

go to the picture thread and there are a bunch of image hosts listed, but this is what i use.


www.imgspot.com and then u have to Browse and get the pic u want and then you upload it and then there will be like 6 links they give you. i think its about the 6th one down u copy that and then come on here and then click the IMG link and then a pop up will as the image url and then u paste it in there. and then it should show up when u post it up.

hope it works.

...I decided to search for a thread like this because of the "jesus saves" thread was getting into motives...and this is a quality thread so...I&#39;m involved in graffiti for several reasons. Because I believe in the idea that I have the right to put up an image on the streets just as much as McDonalds does with their advertisements. And I think with all these buildings and Wal-Marts being made the city needs some fresh color. I think it is great &#39;cause I can do all of the above while expressing myself in the most kick ass way. I do it because I love that ninja feeling I get. I like the alter ego feeling of it....the rush is amazing.......I want to entertain the passer-by..I want to make their walk to the 7-11 better...

so all i got to say is thati love art, hip hop and graffitti

im re-posting this because slobs topic got closed.........


I sketch to push my artistic ability to the fullest, but.... i feel its only half the battle and incomplete till its up huge on a wall

i paint because thats where the shits real you know what im sayin, the HECKTIC MISSIONS, hittin every grimey surface, runnin and rushin, makin it drippy as fuck and basicly givin a big "FUCK YOU" to the establishment

but then i also love chillin at a safe spot and spendin hours on a peice ya know, makin it perfect and proving my shit can run wit the best of em, meetin writeres from all over the place, commin together an finding a common element, respecting and collaborating with all kinds of crazy styles an jus the whole underground culture is why i risk my ass an will continue to do so through the good the bad an the ugly it doesnt matter.

Its about having passion in life and stickin with it, like the other day i went to a theater play and theres this fuckin 95 year old guy wailing on the drums like hes 25 again. i shook his hand after the show and told him your my idol man, thats true passion an i pray to god im still doing what i love at your age.

and ive always said, im only truely happy when i got my girl by my side and a can of ghetto paint in my hand, thats the way it is now and god willing thats the way it will be till the day i die.

and i dont think you need to reach fame to be a part of the sub culture of graffitti and hip hop.. i mean once your in the game for real and got throw ups straight letter bombs pieces shit man thats the subculture.. its all about rebelling and letting people know "oh shit that person who ever he is was here"......a way to express yourself.....stay up

shit whats up with all this fame bull shit. graffitti isnt about being famous its about being rebelious. if you want to be a famous artist get into a gallery or something like that. i mean yeah sure its cool to have your homies know damn that shit was fresh or dope what ever your want. but i mean shouldnt people write for the love of self expression and hip hop culture. alot of you kids coming up now trying to jump in the game dont really ever think about old school. i mean now a days ill admit i dont rack paint im older i got a girlfriend a decent job im in college i cant be doing that shit. but yeah when i was 14 - 17 i lived in hawaii id go into ace hardware or wall mart or ben franklin and id rack all my paint i didnt buy shit. and how many of you can actually say you rack your paint? not very many and most of you are lying when you say you do. so tell me shut the fuck up when you see this. cause you know im right. but really read this and reflect.

peace to everyone back in honolulu killing shit. and everyone else doing there part to save the art and love for graffitti/hip hop..stay up

Sace approached the wall and stood there for a few moments with a can held in his sweaty hands. He began to swiftly guide each line to shape every letter in a unique style that could only be created by a experienced writer. His finished product was composed of a red outline and filled by shades of yellow and orange. "Practice makes perfect bro", said sace. Drake nodded and took a few seconds to take in the vibes that the piece spewed out. This was inspiration. This was the reason he had gotten up this morning. This was the motivation to become a better writer. This was his cure for that itch he had gotten since the moment he laid eyes on the first well put together piece of graffiti. An addiction that was stronger than any drug habit, an addiction he never thought possible.

yeah i don&#39;t get up as much as i used to. but i&#39;m also 24 and starting a master&#39;s program in my university (different than the british system, 4 years for a bachelor degree, and 2 years for a masters). i still make time to paint and i get up when i go out. but trying to lead a somewhat legitimate life is buggin me.

not making excuses, but i have put in work, just not as much anymore.

I dont know why these toy suburban kids write..but ya


I live in the city projects and dont have shit so I just go out and destroy shit. Cant stand that other people fucking drive Ferraris through my neighbor hood like shit is good. Within the last 5 years or so my neighborhood has been steadly getting gentrified. Its all a fucking spill over from across the bridge.

i do graff for so many different reasons, i chose the love for art one, but it all started with curiosity and expressing myself. but after that i learned to apreciate the art and became hooked on the rush

I honestly cant say why I write
I guess just cuz I think its cool, cuz really your only famous among other writers
the general public can tell one tag from another
Graffitti is part of the lifestyle, you know writinng, racking, skating, chasing pussy, cutting school, shit like that. Its just rebellion i guess, like ape said.
Plus for me, Im a graffitti nerd, in that I love learn about it and knowing shit about it like the oldschool, and different techiniques and styles and tools used and dope writers and differnt divisions like fr8s or street art and just knowing about the whole culture and history.
some nerds learn about rocks or space or lord of the rings, I learn about graff i guess

Can somebody please tell me how graffiti is a form of self expression? I dont get it. I do it because I love it. Its all I think about. But how am I expressing myself buy spraypainting a wall. What the fuck does that even mean?

dcite
08-26-2006, 07:06 PM
what do you mean elcs? if you put youor own style and thought into your writing, how are you not expressing yourself? the only way to paint a wall without expressing yourself would be to like put up an obey stencil or some shit.

elcs
08-26-2006, 07:25 PM
I dunno, i guess i am expressing myself under that definition. I just never thought of it that way. When people say: "Riding my bike helps me express myself" or cooking, or sports, or writing...i just never really got that. I would just roll my eyes and think "whatever dude". I still dont really get what it means to "express yourself". But apparently i do it...

SoDamnFresh
08-27-2006, 03:13 AM
well if you got something to say... even if it&#39;s just &#39;I was here&#39; or &#39;I got an original style&#39; you are expressing that thru graff. Riding a bike is a little more sumliminal, but if someone gets extreme joy out of it, they may feel that they are expressing their joy for the out-doors or the wind in their hair or some shit like that....
Thats the thing about art... it&#39;s a form of communication, hence expression. And if someone feels passionatly about sport/cooking/writing, they may look at it as an art-form.

Kao.Ali
08-27-2006, 03:58 AM
i get it being expression sort of, but how is it art
yall are sayin you do it cause you love art, but if your bombing it aint art, if your just in your room sketching that might be art but you aint a writer. and if you do legals and stuff in your backyard that aint graff either .

Because it is fun as fuck. Going bombing is like equivilent to sex. Its a interesting culture too. I love hanging out with other writers and exchanging info and ideas. Also, being up really hard in your city is a great feeling. I dont think its really fame, because the only people who can recognize your shit is other writers and in a city of 12 million people only about 100 or so are writers. (maybe more, idk).
