After the 1st movie released in 2009, The MTN Diaries saga is back. Graffiti is still on the menu, but no halls of fame and no galleries this time… Nothing but sweat, rails, chases and raw action. One word says it all: Hardcore!
The MTN Diaries II, Part 2 continues with some subway and train missions in Athens (Greece) and Milan (Italy). The journey ends up in the streets of Paris once again, for a typical day with the PAL crew who take us on a visit of Paris’ Chinatown… after the classic café-croissant.
Watch the second part of The MTN Diaries II HERE.

Its a short video clip of my Lego letter racers…something I was working with The Rammellzee as his student a few months before he died.
In 2010, the infamous RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ took one final student within his movement of “GOTHIC FUTURISM.” After months of mechanical & design apprenticeship, he was awarded title of “D-ONE”, authorized to race tank style alphabetical letters & given the duty of “IKONOKLAST PANZERIST.” This legacy continues through D-One aka “DR.ZVLV” & the other soldiers in the “TAG MASTER KILLERS” army of assassins…
“Evolutionary, symbolic & functional with building blocks armed to destroy. These letter forms are not a toy.”
This is a news story that documented the second Hex vs. Slick battle. It took place behind a Los Angeles Levitz furniture store in 1990. I grew up in Toronto and somehow got my hands on a VHS dub about a year after, shit is legendary!

A Love Letter For You is a genre-defying new film by director Joey Garfield. A Love Letter For You seamlessly mixes documentary and narrative, love and loss, community and solidarity, art and crime, to paint a compelling portrait of two artists and their impact on the neighborhood they grew up in.
The film documents the notorious graffiti legend, Stephen “ESPO” Powers as he returns to his old stomping grounds in Philadelphia to paint a series of murals on 50 rooftops along the Market train line. The film also weaves in the fictional narrative of FIRE, a young graffiti king who is fresh out of prison on a quest to win back the love and attention of his ex girlfriend. A Love Letter For You mixes a local cast with real-life characters as they rediscover the soul of West Philly and it’s dynamic community.
The film is a multi-faceted project by Stephen Powers with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and is sponsored by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative. The murals have garnered international attention and been published in a coffee table book, featured in a gallery exhibition and generated community education workshops.
