Graffiti Tag Tuesday: NEMEL
This week’s installment of Tag Tuesday features Nemel. Nemel (Jesse Geller) of IRAK, DFW, and FMK is a writer known predominantly for his handstyle. His tags stand out, and often appear stylish and fresh. Growing up in Philadelphia inspired him to create a name with a vowel following each consonant letter. Some writers based in Philadelphia whose tags follow the same structure are Saga, Aser, Rakan, Rasan and Peka. As a youth in Philadelphia, he looked up to writers like Dane 121, Meez, Suroc, Kadism, and Espo. Today, his interest in writers is generated by those who bomb with tags and throw ups. He believes that tagging is the base of graffiti existence. Nemel is originally from Philadelphia, but has ties to San Fransisco and New York. His favorite city is San Francisco, and New York is not too far behind. He believes that San Francisco creates chaos while maintaining beauty, which is an ideal for him. His tag continues to evolve, and his influences are structured and prominent in his work around the country.
