“Don’t think about it… Be about it… always taking it to the next level… at all times…”
This is the attitude that VEEFER has brought with full force to the streets of New York. He’s about that action, and has been since the late 80s when his iconic VFR throwups first began popping up across the five boroughs. He’s a graffiti writer in the most classic and dedicated sense of the term, a credentialed vet and an imposing presence in the NY scene. If you don’t know about him already stop reading, hop on your nearest search engine and start doing some research. Knowing your roots is crucial in graffiti culture, a culture built on the backs of guys like VEEFER.
The name has fluctuated over the years between VFR, VEEFER, VF and VFRESH, but the mentality has always remained the same. VEEFER is a fucking bomber. After getting his start at the City Hall layups he hit the streets, and hit them hard. Pretty soon his throw ups could be found in some of the most unique spots, and his hands, some of the cleanest out there, were littered across city blocks. What WuTang was to hip hop in the 90s VEEFER was to graffiti, helping to define an era and attitude for future generations.
