in the Kingdom ?
One of the first graffiti artists in the country, was a b-boy with the Ballistic
Rockers. He has done quite a bit of commisioned work lately, eg. for the
TV station SABC 1 and lots of work for companies in Guateng where he now
resides. He also toured Europe with POC and did some pieces over there.
Tony is an oldskool writer who was down with the Zulu nation, King Jamo
and the whole nine. This guys has great technical skills and does lots of
work for jams and t-shirts. I think his stuff is always of good quality
but the one that stands out for me is the backdrop he did for the POC album
He is the buziest graf artist at the moment with the most pieces. This guy
is everywhere. His work can be seen in Cape Town, Grahamstown, P.E., Guateng
and even Sweden (where he got beaten for some reason) Also down with King
Jamo and TVA ( the villianous animators)
This guy is around the way from me. He is getting lots of commissioned work
lately, that's helping him pay the internet bills. Did some nice stuff with
Falko Muff TVA etc. Apparently did some work at the 2 Oceans Aquarium at
the Waterfront. Primarily a character artist by admition, portraits, faces
etc. are what he concentrates on. Oh yeah he's finishing his last year of
graphic art and hopes to travel the world soon. Also check out an
interview Geto 3000 did with SKY ONE.
Saw this guys work in Mitchells plain. On that popular 2D trip, but pulls
it off everytime and with style. Was interviewed for a documentary that
aired on national television. Won a few graf competitions and mostly does
work in his area.
Used to live in the Athlone area when I first met him. He doesn't do that
much work, but this guy's got hair on his teeth. Seriously when he decides
he's gonna piece up, he does it no matter what. Come police or gangster
he'll finish what he started.
Only seen his work at the graf competition that Falko organised, don't know
much else about him.
From a very well off area this guy. Still a bit nervous when piecing up
around people. Lately has done work with AMP 37 under the name of YMB. These
can be seen along the suburban trainlines and the great wall of Saltriver.
Getting better with each piece.
Apparently a very young brother who did a chromie with massive letters.
This was with Falko and Sky One at the Woodstock Bridge.
Also rapper by the name of Suroc. Started the same time as Falko, but stopped
for a long time. Participated in the competition that Falko organised. Don't
know if he's doin any pieces at the mo.
Theres quite a bit of activity in this part of the culture with new writers
getting up all the time. Other folks however have seen this as a bunch of
toys trying to get attention. We'll keep you posted with the happenings
and hopefully Sky One will get those photos to me that he promised.
