"Just recently the mayor proposed to double the fines for graffiti in Chicago, but we see these re-election campaign tactics all the time.""I liked seeing writers get up for years without knowing who they were or what they looked like - you’d have to know somebody who knew somebody who would one day introduce you, and if you were lucky they’d show you their shoeboxes full of flicks.""There’s a lot of incredible stuff being done with spray paint nowadays from realism to abstract, but there’s nothing like a well-crafted tag, throw, or full-blown wildstyle on a street or train. That’s graffiti.""Streak tags and handstyles caught my attention the most."
