People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible, and childish. But that’s only if it’s done properly.

Derived from the Italian sgraffio, meaning “scratch,” graffiti has been around since the beginning of mankind. Pictures, such as those at the Lascaux Caves in France, were mostly carved into cave walls with bones or stones, but early man also anticipated the stencil and spray technique, blowing coloured powder through hollow bones …
Today’s graffiti developed towards the end of the 1970s in New York and Philadelphia, where artists such as Taki 183, Julio 204, Cat 161 and Cornbread painted their names on walls or in subway stations around Manhattan … The New York model of graffiti centered around the distortion of letters, but many new approaches have since emerged.
