Graffiti

  1. 1. GRAFFITI
  2. 2. HISTORY during WWII, james j. kilroy, a ship inspector, documents his work with a yellow crayon “jj kilroy.” in the late 1960’s darryl mccray from philly became the first “tagger” on record. he was the first writer ever to tag an airplane, the jackson 5’s airplane. in july 1971 the new york times interviewed TAKI183 and as a result, everyone became a graffiti writer.
  3. 3. TRAVEL in late 1974 and early 1975 “throw ups” became a standard sight on the trains. this established the foundation of NYC interbrough competition. to avoid throw up removal, writers painted freight trains resulting attention across country.
  4. 4. STYLE writers discovered that caps from other aerosol products could provide a larger width of spray. bubble letters and broadway style were the earliest forms of actual pieces and therefore the foundation of many styles.
  5. 5. STREET ART turn of the century became a new genre of graffiti art. taggers takes it to the next level creating their brand on the streets. some artists’ tags pushes the idea of graffiti as contributing to the community, to make someone smile.
  6. 6. DIGITAL as the price of spray paint increased in the late 90s, graffiti artists prevail with new techniques. there are websites deciated to making your own graffiti fonts without the skills of spray painting. graffiti research lab (G.R.L.) created a way to graffiti entire buildings out in public using a laser pen and a projector. various artists are using LEDs for night time graffiti on their own products or tagging them on street signs.
  7. 7. INFLUENCE a street art campaign based on a design by shepard fairey created in 1986 in charleston, south carolina. distributed by the skater community, the andre stickers began showing up in nearly every major city worldwide. fairey has cynically turned graffiti culture into a self-promoting ad campaign, turning street art into a cheap hustle that is no different from corporate advertising.
