“We can only advance our culture only by our own accounting’

This is my sentiment heading into the new year 2012.

Ive questioned post graffiti early on since my early visits to N.O.G.A (Nation of Graffiti Artist- circa 1978), the first place I had every seen graffiti painted on canvas by the likes of Kase2, Scorpio, Chino Malo and others and then there was the Souls Artists collective and also the Sam Esesse studio project whose participants where, Shy147, Dondi, Kel, Crash, Haze, Futura, Bil Rock, myself and many more- circa 1980.

These where milestones moments that in our collective history, moments that we can honestly record as our truths, our story, without them we wouldnt be as far along as we are today.”
