I had been wanting to do something with the back of the studio-- something that stood out from the rest
Clown and I spoke to my boss, the owner of the studio, and then began planning our design and color scheme. At 8 AM, the following Sunday morning, we met outside the trailer. Clown was already setting up the ladder when I pulled in. Once Mews arrived, it was go-time. I placed the GoPro on the tripod, and set up my camera. I wanted to capture shots of every movement and every stroke. The process of creation is just as important as the final art piece.
After a few hours, we received a call from Kano, who happened to have an art space on the next block. He came over, took one look at what we were doing, and picked up a can. Around the same time, Mews got a call from SPE136; we still had an opening at the front of the trailer, so we invited him over. Our two artists had quickly become four. One thing I love about graff, is the way it spurs collaboration. As classic rock blared from the speakers and the sun shined down on us, we couldn’t help but smile— We sprayed away, knowing we couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon.
The next day, my boss was blown away by what we had done. He asked us to paint the shitty old shed and we didn’t hesitate; we made plans for the following week. When 8 AM, next Sunday morning rolled around, I was greeted by Clown, and his two buddies SELF and STRAE. After catching up and figuring out who would do what, we got right to work. For hours, all you could hear was the shhrrr of spray-cans. Halfway-through, Kromahtaic, our friend from AUS, came over to catch some of the action with his camera. When the three of them finished the shed, they moved onto the dumpster. Five hours later, the deed was done and the time had come for everyone to go their separate ways.
