    I do his for me
    and to let people
    know to rise up
    there's a ton of shit
    going on in this world
    and i figure with a little bit
    of paint in my hands
    and a fucked up head on my shoulders
    maybe i could change some shit that's going on

    i respect art n shit but the reason i write is cuz im tryin to show the government, brainwashed drones(society)and mark ass bitches wuts good. in other words i try my best to open their eyes even tho these category's of bitches see art as vandalism n shit just cuz the government doesnt approve, the government doesnt approve cuz anything they dont have control over they try to put on lockdown, i say fuck them all... so i write.

    The reason why I graff cannot be fitted into a poll, I dont graff for fame,people or anyone else. they can all burn- I write for personal reasons one though is just to start a movement its more then just art it's a lifestyle and overall I will spray over all the government buildings cus they can burn in hell, I write to revolt to create and to show art in its truest form..
    :p

    I like destroying shit too.

    :D

    in my opinion theres two sides of graffiti, the destruction(bombingetc.) and the creation(murals etc.), personally i prefer destruction,cant really pull murals yet but i like to destroy... but not to be a dick or what not simply because doing it makes me feel defined
    and not a part of society...i'm not on some getting up trane shit though, if youre meant to
    be a writer i think its unavoidable blah blah blah graffiti

    to do something that separates me from the day to day bullshit everybody needs to contend with. For those few seconds i spend reaching up to write my name on some sign or the hours i spend under some bridge doing a piece im not thinking about anything but graffiti, not worrying about what fucken college will accept me, what some fkn girl thinks, how broke i mite be.

    I do it for the adrenaline boost, same reason I skate, sell, and work out.
    I think a big reason I do it also is to stop boredom.
    there is nothing worse than having nothing to do.

    it's like my boy syerf says it's for the love of the art all the way. not only that but it's also a form of expression. were out to send a message here and it's this: were not just jackasses destroying public property. were jackasses destroying public property WITH PURPOSE!!
