SECRET WALL TATTOOS

Often enough the hotels are some boring & impersonal places along with a depressive decoration. Some unknowns have independently decided to change the mood of “their” rooms by drawing on some hidden surfaces where the cleaning service doesn’t think to watch (on a wall under a frame / a mirror, on the floor under a bed, under a chair,… )
Thus the insomniac activist spends his night to create an ignorant art or to mediate front to his old graffiti if he has rent the same room. Before leaving, the unknown puts back in place every components to keep it secret. So the painting will be seen (or completed) only by a wondering mind :

Graffiti – Writing Focus Part 07 : EYES B [Brussels]

Posted by on 02/18/2011 | Category : // Visual Art / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

From Brussels, evolving into the NHR and the TsunamiGraffiti Crew,
EYES B is a graffiti writer with an interesting point of view. This activist designs some abstract & dynamic environments inspired by some macro views of organic elements. Nethertheless, that’s not a 100% abstract painting, his graffiti pieces still feature some letters written by just the minimum of outlines to be read (like on the vandal tags indeed).
On walls, EYES B is really playing with the full development of bombing : fat cap, skinny cap, flow, line, confusion, spitting, color, vapor, drip…all that seems to be made with no self-censorship.

This selection is focus on some walls that have a kind of feeling with the deep-sea environments, so welcome in the EYES B underworld :

WRITERS – 20 ans de Graff à Paris

Posted by on 05/31/2010 | Category : Documentaries - Archives / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

WRITERS is the documentary about the history of graffiti in PARIS during 1983 to 2003. It’s like a frenchy STYLE WARS with a focus on the oldschool and also on the newschool activists. This summary of 20 years is very interesting to understand the evolution of the movement : the happiness of the discovery to a hardcore battle. Inspired by New York, connected with England and Germany, PARIS is known to have created the basement of 90’s European style. Like a Bible, this documentary explains the classic legacy of graffiti. The documentary is written by a disciple with a non-objective point of view however he has really honored the lovers of letters and that’s the most important. If it’s always necessary to start a culture by respecting the foundation…later it’s better to commit a sin : to break the rules and write the future! But Sometimes it’s good to trust again in the utopia of the purist version :
