    i do it cause the feeling of the paint comin out my hand, the smell of paint, lookin at what you just did, the rush, it's the best, it's an unexplainable thing what most us graff writers do, it's a fuckin underground art with groups of random kids who can appreciate feeling art first hand, fuck school and fuck all these major art crits who think they know what art is and that it should be in galleries and shit, fuck them, this is ours and we fucking love it

    My personal graffiti addiction was born of many reasons. It all started out of depression, boredom, and hatred for the place I was living. I decided it would be a good way to boost my self esteem, nothing quite helps build confidence like FAME even in small doses. As soon as kids started asking who did this piece and that piece at the skatepark I quickly decided that the streets were a better choice for spreading the name and fame, plus I still hated where I was so It felt great to just go out and blatantly bomb shit everywhere. I started in a small city so it really wasn't to hard to go all city quick. Graff definately helped me through some rough times and has kept me from feeling like murkin' myself many times.

    At the same time though you have to be careful with bombing in small places especially because if you come up quick in an area you'll get jealous toys, which results in them getting caught, and unfortunately that can lead to snitches. I was snitched out by half a dozen or so underage toy writers who obviously didn't realize that they didn't have to rat anyone out to save their asses and unfortunatly, I'm fighting some legal battles to this day over that shit.

    you've just gotta take the good with the bad and be fucking careful! Graff shit isn't something you should ever inform anyone you can't trust about, and also, you've gotta know where you draw too much negative attention from bombing and shit like that.

    I just like to do it for myself, chilling with some friends at a legal spot
    and illegal is fun because of the adrenaline rush and to see your piece in daylight

    epress myself and it's my fav type of art. Im an artist and my canvas is the city, i love how one's art is done on the society they live in and not in some fucking museum. Graffiti reaches out the most out of all types of art.

    I hope you can respect me for this... but I don't do street anymore.
    I'm purely art. I appreciate to the fullest other forms of art, but I lend my attention more toward graffiti.
