    No one writes in my town, The only other writer I've seen lately is a stencilist going by the name of Atilla. I guess I write because it gives me the oppurtunity to do something artistic and I live graffiti, just doing it feels fun, I used to play xbox when I get home from school but now I just draw up new shit haha. The rap group Hilltop Hoods got me into graff

    I've always been drawing everywhere, since i was a child. Now i'm on academy n shit. i think graffs are a way of expressing myself. It's the act of my alter-ego. And the streets are the best galleries, avalible for everybody. And I also respect architecture, culture, old buildings, statues and shit so i don't write there, i'm not the stupid fuck who does this. I have my own codex of writing, so some of you do also have it and for those who apply to it, writing shoulden't be breaking the law.

    I write for the adrenaline, for vandalism, and for the art itself.
    The adrenaline I get after hitting busy a spot is obsessively addicting.
    Destroying the freshly buffed walls or boxes and seeing your name everywhere, give a sense of overwhelming satisfaction.
    The art of graffiti has so much potential and so do I, its incorporated into my everyday life.
    I'm no King, probably still a toy, more or less a local writer, I intend to stay in the game all my life.
    As we undergo drastic improvements, the shit you see on the streets become less and less of a dream.
    Over time, being able to own that shit and get better and better. THIS is why, as a graffiti artist, I write.

    I write for many reasons. The main one is because my life sucks and it's a way to vent all of the anger i've got inside of me. When i'm at school, no one talks to me because i talk "like i'm better than everybody" and listen to a different kind of music. I get home and my stepfather hates me...just because. But then i hop into my cargos, grab my bag and go into the streets. When i meet other artists, they greet me with open arms. In that instance, i guess i do it for a sense of belonging as well.
    God only knows if there's something deeper...

    Join a gang bruh! Jokes. If you are doing it for a sense of belonging be careful, you might go into too deep and become someone you're not. But now you are so it is you blah blah blah.

    I do it for political reasons. I feel that I could spend 4 or 5 days writing a manifesto that would never be read...or I could make an image that would grab their undivided attention for 20 seconds. I appreciate the outlet of venting my frustration with our materialistic society. I am an anarcho-primitivist. I don't believe in property damage or destruction because property has no feelings and since we all at one point paid taxes...I might as well get a piece of that wall.

    Art, outlet, spreading a message, and fighting my insomnia. My day job (chemical engineer) is too angular and uptight. I feel released when I am alone at 3 am. I is therapeutic in a sense. Better than taking prozac.

    Do you know what I hate the most? When hipster faggots come at me with the whole "Graffiti is love bro. It's a form of art that you can make into whatever you want man! It's a true art form! You can't think that way dude, stencils aren't gay"

    No motherfucker, graffiti is a close-minded "form of art" full of egotistical assholes that will smoke you if you don't understand it. Not no hipster stencil bullshit.

    short rant^. comes down to the *****s that know how to act vs the fools that dont(which = the majority). *****s that r humble to get down w/ a superior, and fools that cant get down cause they aint got the knowledge or the skill.

    I write for the art, the colors, the depth. Screw vandalism man. No disrespect to others, but i would never go out bombing just to vandalize.
    I also love the feeling of seeing your name roll by on a train. Thats the greatest.
    But the feeling of not being able to tell alot of people sucks, cause its such a small town and word spreads fast. Especially if you just did a crazy piece. Haha, im sure y'all know what im talkin about.

    so besides the obvious, what is the fundamental difference between vandalizing a building that is not yours, and vandalizing a train that is not yours?

    i think guyguyer nailed it when he called you a "fucking hypocritical idiot".

    I write to express my artistic nature ;)... MAN FUCK THAT! I write because i want people to see VILE-FLC on a wall and say, "man! That cat can paint!" or see me on a roof spot and think to themselves "man VILE has some balls that spot is crazy!" i write to get respect from other writers and it helps that it is fun haha. I thrive to have the absolute most amount of fame on the streets. I also have been writing a lot more lately cause i am trying to get into a new crew, but shhhhh dont tell FLC hahaha no i am kidding BTM and FLC are tight theres no beef in the mix a switch would be good for both crews i think.

    I write because when you go out bombing you get a insane adrenaline rush!!!! And also its an awesome feeling when you hear your mates say what a sick piece you did or if you hear a random person comment on how good it looks!
