Storyline

Official selection AFI FEST 2004. ROCK FRESH is an electrifying documentary on the world of the graffiti artist. A raw snapshot of artists who literally have their back against the wall, the film follows five of the world's most legendary street artists as they make the leap from graffiti art to commercial art. From the street to the gallery. From walls to clothing. From private to worldwide. Our cameras unmask the mystifying process behind graffiti art like never before. Revealing step-by-step how the colors blend, how the angles sharpen, how the shadows emerge. Lifting the veil from a subculture so clandestine, it took 40 years to get this close. The artists take their skills to a variety of surfaces -concrete, canvas, metal, cloth, and brick. And to an array of locations - city rooftops, the desert, downtown lofts, the sewers, even the forest. ROCK FRESH also reveals artists painfully coming of age. From kids drawing in their sketchbooks, to grown men struggling to make a living ... Written by Calico Arts

a true piece of art.
28 December 2005 | by barryhatcher2000See all my reviews

incredible incredible. such a distinct film on such a relevant culture. as a fine artist myself i was instantly engaged in this film. i didn't see it as a film on graffiti art. i saw it as a raw depiction of artists trying to make a living off what they love, with graffiti as the backdrop. hardcore graffiti guys might think i'm wrong but that's just my take. i love the rich vibrant colors and editing/graphics that are layered over it. the film is honestly the first of its kind. a breakthrough in film-making and our general way of thought. i applaud the filmmakers in their sincere effort in bringing beauty and a subculture rarely unseen. we all know about the illegal, destructive side. those kids may love that vandalism element but 95% of the world appreciate true art. and this is what this film is - true art.
