Klass RTW art

This article was posted by Alan Ket 4 months, 6 hours, 16 minutes ago.

My good friend and OG Klass’ graffiti was born of East Harlem “the Gates of the Ghetto” as the main partner of Shaker 179 RTW TFA TDS.
Together, they bombed streets, highways and subways throughout the city starting in the early 80’s before retiring briefly in 1988. 1990 was a comeback year for him and a new generation of TDS artists who were painting large scale illegal walls mostly in Harlem. A neighborhood so rich in graffiti history. He has painted with the best of the best of NYC writers like Dr. Revolt, Zephyr, Quik, Shaker, Part 1, A-One, Toxic, Ezo, Smith, Tracy 168 to name a few. He was partly responsible for a historic comeback of “Zephyr” in the early 90’s when they painted many walls, highways, and freight trains pretty hard with Lady Pink and Smith, Omni 156, etc… Klass was also a friend of the late great Rammelizee since the early 80’s and holds down 2 letters in the alphabet of the iconoclastic master… P1 and F1…

His newest exhibition is live on the online gallery Dirty Pilot:

News drawings by Ket

This article was posted by Alan Ket 4 months, 2 weeks, 3 days, 23 hours, 35 minutes ago.

For the past year I have been working on ideas on how to present drawings or art for sale for the simple reason that many people are constantly asking me to sell them something or to make a canvas for them. I have usually declined these offers because the art or the graffiti that I make is not for sale as it is outdoors either on the street on a wall or on the side of a train. Its the way that I do my thing and you can’t really sell that (unless your Banksy).

Anyway, This year I have been inside a whole lot raising a new child and drawing more than ever. It’s been during this time that I have come up with a way to make something that I like and that I feel I can actually sell. One of the things that I have come up with are photo prints of historical images I have photographed. The other are drawings of pieces, slogans, words on newspapers. These drawings are created on articles and newspaper images that I find and that I feel are relevant to share. Most are clips from articles about the war or social unrest around the world - things that move me and that are part of the times we live in. Other times it might be poignant images that I can manipulate. In order to make these pieces less fragile I mount them on heavy paper and then typically frame them. I am quite happy with the outcome and continue to make more as I am still experimenting and still working indoors.

I’m glad to share these drawings some of which I have shared previously on my Instagram account. They are fun to do and a new way to make something that I can share. If you are interested in purchasing them they are on my new site 9for a limited time). They are priced to go into the collections of writers: http://ket.bigcartel.com/

Thanks for the continued support!

Video Graf gifs

This article was posted by Alan Ket 7 months, 12 hours, 8 minutes ago.

Remember Video Graf 3? Yeah, me too. After over 20 years this video still gets circulated and I still get people repeating some of the dumb things I said in those teen years. Anyway, besides all the shit talking, they were the best of times. Recently Spraygang.com sent me a cool set of Gifs that were inspired by the crazy platform mission that Sed, Gkay, and I were on in the video. Here they are….
