use of the spray can...

2016 August 14

My observation is that graffiti writers are interested in what they can do with a spray can & street artists are interested in what a spray can does. A-One & Futura piked my interest in this very early on, late 80's especially after being in New York in 1986, but i was really drilled home that it was a line you can step across when i watched Adrian Arcae draw this sketch for me in my sketch book at Juice 126's place in Birmingham in 1997, Arcae wasn't your typical graffiti writer but it was the way he looked at the end of a Copic marker before dragon it down the page twisting it back & forth between his fingers that caused me to really stop, look & think about line & form from a tool or instrument that we use to make marks.
