<3 Arts & Aerosol

« on: February 28, 2009 08:14:19 AM »

I wasn't sure if there was a forum for outside/street art, but if so, I can move this.
Anywayyy, one of my main loves is aerosol.
I got into graff about 5 years ago, first as something dumb to do on drunk nights out, then finding it a fun means of expressing myself, as well as ridiculously challenging.
I can draw pen to paper well, but moving it onto a wall is just a whole different story, one I still struggle with.
 Tongue
But I love it, and it's a great way to meet awesome people (it's how my bf and I got together), and there's nothing better than gettin a production going of a bunch of writers underneath an out-of-the-way bridge in the beautiful weather.
And the rush from goin' out bombing at night is better than wasting all my monies on benders, right?

Anyway, enough of the novel, here are some flickkkkks of things I've done.

In an old abandoned building, on a cold winters dayyy.

This wall doesn't exist anymore. They ripped it all down, we went back and collected little cement chunks with our paint chips still on it.

this one got buffed four days later. It was beautiful and beaming downtown tdot.
Did it at 2am with my bf on the top of a building that we freakin' climbed up the side of! (horrifying)
but had a great time.

SIP 2008.
We got the most amazing chance to paint at Style In Progress. Its a huge graff jam that happens DT Toronto once a year where a bunch of writers come out and attack the Queen St. Alley walls.
Me and my boy were part of it, and a buddy of ours Esker (Reks) is in the bottom left.

i think cities could save a ton of money if instead of removing graffiti they only enforced that it had to be quality ones.  then if there were ugly ones, someone could just phone some of you guys up and ask you to paint something better over it.

lol, we have a friend that does offical murals by day and still bombs at night.
I don't really get too much of a kick out of the fact that it's illegal,
I mean, it's a rush, but i'm not trying to purposely give the city the finger or anything.

I get really sad with the junky stuff, people who beef other work, or spraypaint penises/rascist stuff/band logos  for no reason.
So we try to keep our stuff interesting to look at, and go from there I guess.

These are just GREAT. I especially love the lucky kitty. you're SUPER talented. I love drawing graffs and I do alot of it into my paper/canvas artwork but all the stuff ive tried moving to walls is hard! what do you use to paint? I've been using montanas but i'm not sure if there is anything better.

I totally agree with that comment.  This stuff is gorgeous.  I'm sure some people would argue that it's inappropriate b/c of the "mature" content and that it's illegal, but really?  I'd rather look at this than a lot of the graffiti I see. AWESOME.

The pics of the naughty ladies are all under bridges and from known graff spots.
I wouldn't paint anything like that, say beside a school.

Most of the bigger/more technical pieces will be painted in places most people wouldn't normally see.
Under bridges, along tracks, abandoned buildings, etc.
Mainly because there's more space, less people, so everyone can chill more.

i triple love your work.
it's gorgeous.
-- funny story - my fourth-grade son loves art and spends a lot of time looking at art books and going to museums and galleries. and his art teacher explained that in the middle ages, nudity in art represented truth and our divine nature. so now when he sees a naked lady in a painting, he'll say - there's some lady showing her truth. i get such a kick out of it every time he says it!
