Video: Tilt – Elevate Atlanta Art Festival

By - Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Always on top of it, Bates recently posted a video of French graffiti writer Tilt on his 12ozProphet blog. Recorded in Atlanta, Georgia this past October, the video shows Tilt painting a mural of an American flag made up of throwies of peoples’ names and reactions of some of the residents of the community. Tilt : “Atlanta, Georgia is one of the sister cities for my hometown, Toulouse France. This year, through a partnership of The Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs and the French Consulate to Atlanta, I was invited to participate in the 2012 edition of the Elevate Atlanta Art Festival. “This was my first time to Atlanta. I painted this American flag mural made of names. I collected these names from people I met during my time on South Broad Street, the location of my artwork. It was a great experience. I had many opportunities to meet many different ” Americans “, long time residents, store owners, homeless community members, Vietnam vets, a couple by the name “Gay Judges”, local Hip Hop stars, preachers, grandmas, gangstas, workers etc. etc…. “On the same block, PUSH, HENSE, SEVER and BORN presented big murals as well. My friend GriZZ aka Big Addict was there with me.He produced this beautiful video with very cool pictures. They speak louder than I … so, enjoy..!”
