Order of The Lost Kids presents: Spray Paint And Law Breaking: Everything You Don't Really Need to Know About Graffiti and the Girl Behind the Mask
Make Mischief. Stay Young. Always Question.
When I began my journey through the practices of street art, I found myself faced with a number of questions from my peers and others on graffiti. Yet, no one asked me about my work, it was always about the general practice of street art. I realized that while graffiti has broken into mainstream culture in the last decade, it is still a relatively unknown practice. While I have immersed myself in the culture, most people only see the surface blurbs and never think to look further. This paper seeks to educate and answer the questions in hopes that know everyone will stop asking me and get to the heart of the work.
