Very kewl look into graffiti
10 April 2017 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

WOW! Something we have all seen. And here is a look, an explanation, a description, maybe just a peek into it's origins.

The documentary doesn't give a complete history on graffiti but rather a look into how the phenomena started in Manhattan and gained popularity in a poor overlooked youth subculture and how it spread from one area to another. (Not the best description)

Starting in the late 1960's this art expression labeled 'Graffiti' was viewed with disdain by the general public until an artist brought it to the forefront for his own glory. When the public responded favorably this artist paid a personal price.

This docu explains the many aspects with the growth and acceptance and refinement in Wall Writers. Surely a must see for anyone who appreciates how this form of personal expression found it's place in the art world.
