Lets take a second to talk about Graffiti and Street Art. People don’t always feel the two are on the same playing field, and they are not always wrong. Cost and Revs broke a lot of rules in their day and pioneered a lot of techniques used today; housepaint roller letters, xerox copied flier style paste ups, insane lean overs and roof tops. Now I know there’s always some people out there yelling “so-and-so did this before them, so-and-so did that first and they copied that, bla bla bla…”  But  no one did it like them or as much, period. Having said that, an artist I’ve been talking to for a couple of years, ENX has been doing her street art, and I asked her to send me pics from time to time of what she is up to and what she sees in New York. I was happy to hear she has been linking up with and putting in work with the KRT crew, COST-REVS-SET-KRT. Here’s some pics of what they have been up to, expect more in the future too.

Last thing, ENX has been rocking her wolfs for a while and I hope you are feeling them the way I am, enjoy!

Peeped on the Streets – Chicago

April 30, 2013 at 9:37 pm

I’ve never painted in Chicago, but it’s a city you always hear about. It has it’s infamous past rooted in the bootlegging and gangster days of old time Chicago.  It has the 1950 greaser car clubs and social clubs that rolled over into street gangs. Hip hop and house music also has roots in Chicago.  I think it’s fair to say the city doesn’t lack any street cred.

As far as graffiti goes, In the past, I was surprised that I did not hear more or see more from the Chicago graffiti scene. It was explained to me that street gangs and the harsh graffiti penalties did a lot to stifle Chicago’s graffiti and street art. But not anymore.

I spoke to Sege and he sent me pics of whats been cracking in Chicago. I am looking forward to getting to seeing and hearing more from him soon. Sege sent me picks of his work plus painting partners Amuse, and others including Asend, Pose and others.  Please enjoy the pics and see what Chicago is doing.

I spoke with my boy Hoacs out in Brooklyn, New York recently, and he told me to keep my eyes on his painting partner Owns. After looking him up I understand why, Owns is really fresh! Owns paints with Dmote and Sen2, as well as Hoacs. All of these NYC writers are putting it down in the Big Apple, check it out!
