12oz Exclusive: Sessions – SP ONESP ONE, an iconic and legendary graffiti artist, has been in the game for decades. His unique and original style and contributions to the culture are undeniable. A New York native, born and raised in Queens, he started writing graffiti in 1981. Some of his major influences in no specific order would be Joseph Cornell, RAB CAC, DONDI, Kurt Schwitters, STOE SSB and hundreds of other NYC writers from the early 80s/late 70s.
SP swung by out studio and blessed our blackbook as part of our video series “SESSIONS”.
The artist also recently collaborated with Converse on their Sneakers Clash campaign. His concept was inspired by the idea of no form and in some cases, no shape, just pure movement and gesture. On a freezing and snowy day this past winter he punctured over 50 full cans on one wall in Roxbury near Dudley Square to create a completely spontaneous and abstract mural. Commenting on the project, he said that painting the wall was a refreshing departure and truly embodied the original vision of the project. Read more here.
