The documentary Style Wars (Henry Chalfant and Tony Silver, 1983) is, and has always been, the single most important channel through which the message of the graffiti movement and Hip Hop culture has been communicated. This is a audiovisual document which has been passed along between people, from generation to generation, from the streets, platforms and tunnels of NYC to the rest of the world for three decades. To make this even more eternal, this MTN Limited Edition can is now released thanks to these two photos by Henry Chalfant.

The Versus project has crossed the ocean and came ashore over in the United States. Californian writer Amend chose to confront our ‘Merlot Red‘, one of the colors on our Hardcore 2 scale which in no time has become a classic due to its nice garnet tone and high potential in covering. The following Versus offers elegance and class in all ways possible, don’t miss it!

The artist Paola Delfín came by Barcelona to share her art with us. The Mexican artist explains the origins of her artistic vocation, same as how she came to discover the techniques of aerosol. A tool which, even if fairly new to her, adapts perfectly to her needs in creating her works. Edgar Lledó has once again directed another brilliant audiovisual which brings up close and personal with the artist, and this time to the sounds of Johnny Ripper.
“My memory of school days were notebooks full of drawings.
When I was in school it was all about drawing, drawing and drawing, art classes, and later i took some courses… It has been more a question of self-learning outside of the classes and courses i have taken during my life up until this moment.“

2013 seems to have been a very productive year for the Italian writer, Brus. His extreme style has become an international focus for its high quality wildstyle. But his prolificacy on walls and trains is also of considerable merit, and it is what lead him to become a part of the MOAS group, as he writes about in his latest blog post. His presence at Miami Art Basel festival complete this busy year for the Italian writer.

Through Montana Colors and their exhibition space in Barcelona, Montana Gallery, the young talent Enric Sant, member of the Catalan art collective Mixed Media, was presented during the last International Art Fair Swab.
In a environment surrounded by gallery-stands which presented works for exhibition and sale, the audience saw with surprise a quite dynamic action where they could see the creative process of a piece of art during the four days of the event. This way the visitors were able to get a close look at the doubtless talent and artistic skills of Enric, and his easy way of handling the sprays, how he mixed the colors of the Alien, Hardcore and 94 ranges, and his abilities with brushes to give shades as a last touch, to finally present his finished artwork.
Another step towards showing the general audience that it doesn’t matter where you came from, where you have studied, or because you can take advantage of a acknowledgement on the “market”, as long as what you are doing is flowing of creativity and talent.
Once again we have to say thank you to Edgar Lledó for following up on this work with his exceptional audiovisual work which delights us, and, not to forget, thank you Laura Llopart for bringing us this exclusive soundtrack which along side with the images helps to describe the moment and the work of the artist in a perfect way.

Many years has passed by since Barcelona’s writer Rocky discovered Brazil for the first time. Capoeira which is one of his greatest passions in life, was the main reason for him to convert this enormous country into his second home. As he puts it himself, “wherever I go I bring with me who I am, and I am graffiti”, and Brazil has also been the second playground to develop him as a graffiti writer in his life.
‘Contos de Brasil’ is a short documentary which collects Rocky‘s experiences in the main cities of the country during the years he has been going there. From the layups to the favelas, this writer from Barcelona has developed a european graffiti tradition in a society completely different from his natural habitat and brings us some really interesting adventures which makes us witness the most humane side of graffiti culture: An unforgettable experience where we also get to meet other writers like Biz, Moar, Vista, Raros and Beam.
