Spok discovered graffiti as a kid, in the early ’90s, but soon created his own style with perseverance during the ‘crazy’ effervescent years of graffiti between 1994 and 2003 – on trains, bombing and walls – representing the TBC crew. From back then up till today, he has maintained the quality in his pieces, both on the wall and in the studio, whilst continuing to play with color and forms, experimenting in search for that something new.

Finok (VLOK) and Gueto (L163, ADEPS, PV), writers from Sâo Paulo, were in Barcelona a few months ago. This is a whole day with the guys rolling around the city, sharing different secrets, a whole bunch of laughter, a mess of spray cans, and stuff to eat and drink.

Graffiti, social conscience, and commercial jobs are not always compatible. However, sometimes maintaining this difficult balance is not only possible, but necessary. This artist/writer from Chile, Nessie, is one of the few living examples of this. Enjoy; this is a person with their head really screwed on right.

In the words of the directors themselves: “From the very start, when we had the opportunity to speak with Mac and find out more about his work, we decided to center the video idea, not on the mural process, but on the style and inspiration of the author.
The suggestive image of the girl which he painted really reminded us of Andy Warhol’s screen tests, and the simple details characteristic of Jean-Luc Godard’s Anna Karina. So we threw ourselves into the project, playing with that inspiration. The main thing was to use the dramatic combination of black and white, just as Mac did with his piece.
We had a great time during the whole process with Mac, Ari, and Kim, and hope that they’ll come back to Barcelona soon. Many thanks to Montana for the opportunity!”

We found this video-interview on HypeBeast with Mike Giant. He tells all about the wonder years and how he got his start skateboarding and doing graffiti. Twenty-two years have passed since then. In the video he gets together with some old friends and paints a shutter on Haight street in S.F., like it was any other day. Bravo Mike… we hope to see your stuff for many years to come.
