I WISH I COULD BOMB THINGS....



"Graffiti belongs to everyone and no one. On a section of a condemned wall, I put up a graffito... a bank director stopped the construction work, had my carving cut out as a fresco and inlayed it in the wall of his apartment."

-Pablo Picasso

 "BOMB IT" A NEW JON REISS DOCUMENTARY THAT EXPLORES THE UNDERGROUND STREET ART CULTURE AND TRADITION OF GRAFFITI.  THE FILM IS A COLLABORATION BETWEEN GRAFFITI WRITERS ON 5 DIFFERENT CONTINENTS TO INVESTIGATE THE HISTORY, POPULARITY AND EXISTENCE  OF THIS ART FORM.  I WISH I HAD THE SKILLS TO PULL OFF A HOT STREET PIECE, BUT ALAS, I DON'T (at all, lol).  SOME FEATURED ARTISTS INCLUDE; SHEPARD FAIREY, KID ACNE & DJ LADY TRIBE (to name a few).  CHECK THE TRAILER FOR THE VIDEO AND SOME SAMPLE PIECES BELOW.
