From Paris, PRO 176 is a pure graffiti writer artist. PRO designs some galactic environments and some futuristic letters inspired by the old Comics (in particular Jack Kurbi), the Sci Fi movies, the Astro Hip-Hop (Kool Keith, Cannibal Ox) and the 80′s Graffiti… He starts to the basics of graffiti writing to found his own touch keeping the purist approach and he is universally recognized for that. PRO 176 is bangin’ on the wall with his teams : the Ultra Boys [Belgium], the Grim Team [Paris] and recently with the Return to Zero [ Berlin]. PRO is also a rapper under his full nickname “PROFECY” and he is the back up singer for the legendary ASSASSIN band on tour since a couple of years.
Welcome in a full color nebula near to the planet Tatooine. Have a nice trip :

ROBERT DEL NAJA aka 3D of MASSIVE ATTACK has just opened a new blog focused on his artworks. 3D started to make graffiti writing in 80′s before evolving to the music along with The Wild Bunch sound system.
ROBERT DEL NAJA [Bristol-UK] made many paintings for his TRIP-HOP band and also for free expression. Much Respect for this fuckin’ talented artist! This is a short selection of his art production, very committed as usual:
The 1st painting of this serie is the cover of the newest MASSIVE ATTACK e.p entitled “ATLAS AIR”. We hope ROBERT will upload some old graffiti on his blog just for the flavor!
