Patti Astor, Fab 5 Freddy, Jean Michel Basquiat- Art in the Streets - MOCAtv Ep. 18

i think people think they are inventing something new out here. altho i LOVE what im seeing in the art world these days, there cannot be a shadow of doubt that it was done already during the 1980s. the difference then is that it was done with a lot more REAL graffiti. from REAL graffiti artists. not art school students who understood the power of the impact of art shared in the public space, first utilized by GRAFFITI writers, by watching their rise in prominence from these times. 

this vdeo took me back to those times, that i was alive to witness, but too young to participate. this is why documentation is so necessary.
