Why does that matter?

(Not hard to find out either)


Because if you're getting this hyped about graffiti and you're over 12 years old, you need to sort it out man.

well you can't really take the moral high-ground about banksy not being 'graffiti' and how you think he's shit and how us lowly plebs can't comment because we don't know how a 'writer' thinks without showing us what in your head actually is 'graffiti'

He's right though autograff, you're basically trying to win an argument by saying "Because I said so".

Truth is Graff is about your letters and getting them up , and if you don't write you won't understand it.

Truth is, if I came and did a shitty tag on your front door, you'd scrub it off instead of leaning back and appreciating my boldness.

Sellout? If any of you were being offered millions for your work would you honestly turn it down and say ''no, people will think i've sold out''? I like Banksy's work. I couldn't care less if people say he's a hypocrite, a sellout, he's not a 'real' graffiti artist. I like looking at his stuff, it's that simple.

I hate him because he is shit , like I hate people who do photo-realism or 3D graff , because it's shit , there is no style to the lettering , if there even are any letters behind those arrows.

I DJ and I like to hear a clang every now and again , atleast you know the DJ is actually mixing.

and Transformers was good.


What is 3d graff? Like Daim?

Take this prick from around Sheff for example.



Rocket , some may like his work , I think it's shit graff , weak letters hidden with 3D.

Plus he is one of the biggest bell-ends in the scene.

Strikes me you take yourself and your 'art' way too seriously. That piece looks pleasing to me, what the fuck are 'weak letters'? Why should someone elses 'art' trigger such a strong response as 'I think it's shit graff'? If I listen to someone mixing and think I could do better I'd think something like 'I'd try doing this or that' - what you've done is just slag off but not offer any reason as to why it is shit and what could be done to improve it.

What is so great about your art, what sets it above everyone else, Banksy included?

Its safe to assume different people do it for different reasons.
Its like saying Rick Ross is less valid as a rapper than Talib Kweli.

Even if the purists think its all about the 'getting your name up' theres a whole nother bunch of writers who approach it differently.

Check out people like Okre , Slice and Nasty , people who do dubs on the streets and trains.

I never said I was great , or did 'art' . Im a writer , I go out and bomb.

Weak letters are stuff like the above , plain letters hidden behind 3d and random crap to make it look pleasing to someone who isn't interested in Graffiti , all pretty like.

He could do better by being less of a prick , and getting out and putting his name on the streets , in some nice big bubbly throwups.

Im probably going to look like a prick for all of this , but I dont really mind , graff is something I love and I hate it when people think shit this is the real stuff.

I think its a fair criticism if that 3D stuff is easy to do but just looks good to the uneducated. But is it actually easy to do that? Looks pretty hard.

much harder than bombing much harder than stencils too

your view on graff depends on what you want to get from it - if you want to be known as an artist you call yourself a street artist and you do 'street art'; if you just want to get your name about you call yourself a graffiti artist. They're two completely separate entities, the only thing that links them is they both use the streets as their canvas anjd (usually) spraypaint as their medium. You can't compare stencil graff and traditional letterforms really
