THE DAILY FIX (FUNK AND JAZZ) SET 3

(Q) How long have you been taking photos of graffiti & what interests you to do so?

(A) I’ve been photographing graffiti since 2004.. I like it for a few reasons.. Mainly, I dig the art.. I’ve always loved art that’s bold and colorful and so graffiti really fits as a subject for me.. Another thing is the “treasure hunt” aspect of shooting graffiti: exploring through so many interesting abanonded buildings, tunnels, city streets and wherever else is a challenge and a lot of fun.. Finally, I definitely enjoy the technical and creative process of the photography itself..

(Q) Do you own photo albums of actual prints or do you prefer digital??

(A) I shoot exclusively digital these days.. I don’t have traditional albums, but I think of Flickr as a kind of album and I guess I see my two books (Bay Area Graffiti & San Francisco Street Art) as albums.. I’ve also been experimenting with large prints lately.. It’s pretty cool to see the images blown up big..

(Q) How many photos are in your personal collection??

(A) I’m not exactly sure.. I’ve posted more than 8,000 photos to Flickr.. There are tens of thousands of graffiti photos in my personal collection..

(Q) Do you feel photography plays a major role in documenting graffiti culture??

(A) Absolutely, yes!! So much graffiti is gone within a few days or a few weeks.. Photography is the most important way the work is preserved..

(Q) Do you have any crazy stories or memorable moments while taking photos??

(A) Really, nothing too dramatic or crazy.. Exploring amazing spots is what’s probably most memorable for me.. I’ve learned that big spots usually don’t last for too long around here, so I always feel lucky to see and photograph them when I can..

BANKSY HEIST IN LA – THE REAL STORY CONFIRMED (VIDEO)

So in case you’re not up on game I will fill you in.. Last week, Banksy was in LA for his West Coast premier of “Exit Through the Gift Shop” & while here he blessed the streets of Los Angeles with a couple paintings including the one below.. To make a long story short, someone had the entire wall removed in order to make a profit but the cats over at Jet-Set Graffiti got the “inside scoop” on exactly what went down.. All the following text is from their website..

banksy

As we’ve been reporting over the past week, our friend Banksy was nice enough to come to LA, hang out for a week, premiere his new film, and make some street art for the ENTIRE community to enjoy.

BAD NEWS…

The Banksy painting was removed from it’s original location at 410 S. La Brea Ave. yesterday morning. It was originally reported publicly here:

http://laist.com/2010/04/13/banksy_art_at_on_la_brea_already_go.php

Now, In this exclusive video sent to JetSet Graffiti anonymously by “a friend of the artist”, the removal process has been captured. The million dollar question we’re about to answer? Who did it?

JetSet Graffiti has confirmed through a business partner of Banksy’s that it was the infamous Doug Christmas of Ace Gallery in Los Angeles that organized the removal and impending unauthorized sale of the artwork.

Famous for treating his bills as if they didn’t exist; Since 1976, Christmas has been sued 55 times by artists, other dealers and art collectors, according to a profile in 2009 in the LA Weekly.

According to the source of the anonymous video, “I asked the workers what they were doing with it, and they said they were hired to remove it, and that it would go into a ‘big collection of art’. We all know that this piece is currently being offered for sale through Ace.”

Further evidence gathered on Google Maps also indicated that Doug Christmas likely played a part in the heist. The installation site at 410 S. La Brea Ave. yielded the following picture at street level:

A close up of that “available” sign yields this phone number:

The phone number connects to Ace Gallery, Los Angeles. Gallery Owner Doug Christmas confirmed via phone to Daniel Lahoda that the piece was in his gallerie’s possession, however Mr. Christmas has “not decided how much to sell it for, or even if we are going to sell it at all.”

Our take on this mess? Glad you asked:

“Do NOT support this sale; the artist never confirmed the work was his, and the piece is now considered counterfeit. Look, if these wealthy gallerists and collectors are going to try and use an artist’s hard work to make money, they will do it on his terms, not off his back. It makes sense for the artist to distance himself from the work now. Banksy never confirmed it was his to begin with, so Ace Gallery and every other greedy art-star fucker can piss off. The irony of it all is that the boys who play the “art is exclusive” BS game so well are now being pushed out by their own rules of engagement so they have to resort to “stealing” the work. They can own the art all they want; but they’ll never own the street.” – Daniel Lahoda, Owner, www.jetsetgraffiti.com

THE DAILY FIX (BUDDZ 909) SET 2

(Q) How long have you been taking photos of graffiti & what interests you to do so?

(A) I first started in ’85 til ’92, then I stopped due to having no time to get photos, but I started back up again in 2004.. Graffiti blew my mind when I saw it in Subway Art, so I wanted to document what was going on in London at the time..

(Q) Do you own photo albums of actual prints or do you prefer digital?

(A) My early photos are all in photo albums but all my new photos are digital..

(Q) How many photos are in your personal collection?

(A) I must have about 9,000 photos, about 4,800 are on my Flickr account..

(Q) Do you feel photography plays a major role in documenting graffiti culture?

(A) Yes i do, Graffiti Art never lasts very long, some pieces only last a few hours due to the buff and toys taking out pieces, so it’s always good to capture the piece and share it with the world, and make it a part of graffiti history..

(Q) Do you have any crazy stories or memorable moments while taking photos?

(A) Not really, been to many dodgy locations over the years, old factories with needles laying on the floor, shitting yourself that a crackhead might jump out at you, been lucky so far..

THE DAILY FIX (ANARCHOSYN) SET 3

(Q) How long have you been taking photos of graffiti & what interests you to do so?

(A) I’ve been taking photos for 5 years.. I originally started so I could have something to hang up on the walls of the recording studio I was using at the time..

(Q) Do you own photo albums of actual prints or do you prefer digital?

(A) Digital, all my photos are scattered across several hard drives..

(Q) How many photos are in your personal collection?

(A) 100,000 or so, although I don’t share all of them..

(Q) Do you feel photography plays a major role in documenting graffiti culture?

(A) Yes, but it’s a double edged sword.. It helps promote the art but at the same time people can get caught up in legal issues so you have to be careful..

(Q) Do you have any crazy stories or memorable moments while taking photos?

(A) I used a ladder to reach the rooftop of a building and while I was up top, someone knocked the ladder over and left it, so I had to climb down a water pipe.. I’m too big of a cat to climb down shit like that.. I’ll also never forget the time in East LA when a man & his young son let me use their lowrider bike for a few pictures in front of a Revok & Aroe wall.. It’s always nice talking to people on the streets when I’m out in the city..

REVOK INTERVIEW IN ACCLAIM MAGAZINE

I just finished reading the interview with the big homie Revok & all I gotta say is DON’T SLEEP!! Revok drops game on alot of important issues/topics.. I highly suggest you read it also which is why I posted the link below..

revok interview

“By now, LA graffiti legend Revok’s ill-fated trip to Australia is infamous. Originally flown out here to coordinate an event that was supposed to be any graffiti writer’s wet dream, the overly ambitious, and seemingly under-funded venture was never to see the light of day and Revok, who had put his own reputation on the line to organise the participants from around the world was left with the unfortunate job of informing the all-star graffiti line-up that their trip to Aus would not be going ahead once the pin was pulled at the last minute.

Ruedione (a renowned German photographer in town for the would-be event) and Revok had a lengthy discussion on the way to the Melbourne airport (where Revok was arrested shortly after arriving), on graffiti today and the creative process. Here is the discussion.” – Ruedi One
