NYC BOX TRUCK: RIME & TOPER

This article was posted by Bates 2 months, 5 days, 16 hours, 3 minutes ago.

Graffiti giants like Rime and Toper made Staten Island their stomping grounds during their New York City come up. And even if it is a place known for welcoming transitory residents (see some notable members of the infamous Wu-Tang Clan) or cats from Jersey— since the Bayonne Bridge connects to the Garden State— Staten Island breeds them hard. This is probably why powerhouses like Rime and Toper don’t find it too hard to “regulate” on walls and surfaces like they had to commandeer growing up writing together.

NYC BOX TRUCK: WANE

This article was posted by Bates 2 months, 6 days, 13 hours, 12 minutes ago.

Mention the Bronx in a few places around the globe and you’re likely to get one of two responses from those that know— intrigue or dismay. Both stem from the same source, the borough’s infamy. Infamy for the sheer poverty that has historically plagued it, and ironically, created the conditions that birthed one of the most revered pockets of early, bourgeoning hip hop culture. Ask Wane COD and he’ll probably tell you firsthand what his esteemed borough meant to him and his style in the early ‘80s, when he dived headfirst into the language that’s taken him around the world— graffiti.

To reflect the cultural rebirth that’s underway in New York’s Catskill mountains, we asked graffiti artist Faust to help us transform an unassuming hotel room into a piece of art that celebrates a great work of literature set in the region—Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle.

RIME MSK “REACTION LINES” VIDEO

This article was posted by Bates 2 months, 3 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours, 39 minutes ago.

MTN WATER BASED X RIME MSK Studio Works (eng subt.) from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

There are quite many graffiti writers who have a more artistic angle and fame due to their restless type of creativity.
This is why our MTN Water Based is the perfect tool when you want to combine different aspects of painting with aerosol, basically the advantages of using water based paint.
We accompanied Rime MSK during his exhibition “Reaction Lines” over at Wall works in Paris, and we open a new line of videos, which together with MTN Water Based, allows us to get closer to the work of some of graffiti-art’s most important names.
