I paint to escape.
What keeps me into graffiti is my love of art and letters, seeing other inspirational artists like Akuze and Does, and just seeing it on the streets.
what keeps me painting???
a general love of mayhem and a total disregard for any laws pertaining to vandalism...
but seriously, the adventure factor, every time you go paint it's like playing Zelda but in real life you know, you could get hurt, killed, arrested, anything can happen. Plus when when it's nice out its a great way to spend an afternoon or night chilling painting, drinking a brusky...
there are lot's of things in it.
every time i do a throw, i look at it and think "fuck this is so good, im getting so much better", and every time i compare my newest throw with my oldest, i think "jesus fuck that was soooo bad, im so happy i got better".
every time i paint something, i go through that process, to the point that i KNOW im going to go through the same process, but i look forward to it now, as i know no matter what i do, every time i do something new, ive gotten better.
Progression is what keeps me going, and what has had me fallen headfirst into something i never had any idea i could be so passionate about.
I just love everything to do with writing. Working on my style, walking round at night with no one around not worrying about anything, searching for spots. just freakin loveees it i do!
'If your back's against the wall turn around and write on it.'
Addiction, something I found that I'm finally good at.

LIVX THVT GRVFF LIFX
At first it was just to be down with some shit my buddies were doing, Then it was the art. Now I can't stop aha
905 Racking King. FREE DUCE.
i still do graff because after highschool and stuff i lost alot of my creativity because i didnt have the materials or time to do anything creative, but with graff theres no real rush and it something i can always make time for, and im not even that good but practice makes perfect and i dont want to lose my creative side as i get older, also watching movies and bombing videos get me hyped to paint and stuff, also after i smoke a few bowls to aha,
its how i blow off stress without getting involved into har drugs
im a toy and wana get better (even if i get good you can always get better)
and most people that write are cool people and its how i usually make friends.
I feel disconnected from the "hive mind" of the world. It's like its being a force of nature. People all just being slaves to something money sex drugs, and i just wanna paint and get my mind seen even if i get infamy, no credit, on that shit. No company, business, or person or higher power above me could make me think or create the way I do. I'm just doing something that I've invented for myself.
What kept me in Graff is probably expressing my art on something bigger than a fucking peice of paper! Concrete-canvas for dais
