Wall Writers

I’ve seen early versions of this film. It’s good, historical, and now it’s got John Waters doing the narration. Congrats to Rog, Zio, and Caleb on this.

“From director Roger Gastman—a producer of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop—comes Wall Writers, a documentary on graffiti in its innocence.

Through unprecedented access to TAKI 183, CORNBREAD, and a host of other legendary writers, Wall Writers tells the story of a time when underprivileged city kids refused to keep lurking in the shadows, when the streets were so wild that fame and infamy became indistinct, when art became a democracy and self-promotion became an art.”

I Love Graffiti When It’s Not On My Property

A print by Roids “loosely inspired by the hypocritical view point of most graffiti writers and all the media types and companies squeezing graffiti for everything its worth.”

OMG BFF LOL

A 2008 animation series by Charlie White from his project “Girl Studies” that was displayed at The Aldrich Museum in 2009.

“Based on a two-year study of the behavior of an actual American teenage girl, the animation is part of a larger project called The Girl Studies that dissects the desires and social anxieties of our era. The animation is meant to perform as a viable cartoon for young girls, while simultaneously providing a platform from which viewers can critique them. White’s works in photography, film, and more recently animation, often offer fictitious narratives to help us understand and evaluate the underlying realities of contemporary life.”
