Old New Paint

This is from 2013, but I haven't been on this street in awhile. 

Hope you are all well.

Yi-Zhong Jie, Taichung

Had a camera in my pocket, time on my hands and graffiti in front of me this afternoon. Only thing I didn't have was boots to cross a muddy lot to shoot an awesome fresh wall down there.

Down in a smaller alley...

And in a parking lot, just in time for Halloween...

10 Times as Bad as Expected

By Priest (via Marcus)

70,000 barrels of oil a day are spilling in the Gulf of Mexico. That's the equivalent of an Exxon Valdez spill every 4 days.

Under the Tracks

Out and about in Taichung and saw this wall from last year.

Here's an interview by Galerie d'art Yves Laroche with Omen, of Taichung Four Crew. Omen is currently painting in Montreal.

YL :You've lived in Asia for  a minute, right? Tell me about painting nights there.

O : It was awesome! I lived in Taichung,Taiwan. I lived there for 4 years. I can bust Chinese and everything. When I got there there was only about 12 graffiti writers in the whole country! With a population of around 25 million  you can see how that is just crazy. I was bombing around town with this paint called PP SPRAY ( all the pressure and twice the lead.haha.) with stock caps no less. And I saw some other guys were bombing as well. Mostly 3 other guys but I had no way of meeting them. So one day I was walking by my piece and underneath it was sprayed "omen. do you want to paint with me" and 2 check boxes with "yes" and  "no". later that night I checked "yes" and then went to another spot and dropped a piece with my email address. But before they could reply to that message my friend Jessica told me she ran into them (it was two guys SAME and BOBO) and they were coming to the restaurant I was eating at. It was pretty awkward because my chinese at this point sucked and all we were doing was meeting to paint. After that we did the first production in Taichung the largest piece in all of Taiwan and went bombing pretty much all the time together. I miss them. It's not the same as here. There you have freedom at the price of no laws while here it is the opposite. One day. One day. Now there is at least 30 writers there , ha, and I keep track of what is going on there via flickr.

Love Minus Zero/ No Limit

I don't get to get out as much anymore to find new graf around town, but this is right across the street from my house, so it was something to do on a busy Sunday. Seems like someone working in my neighborhood who calls himself Zero. I hope to see some more of his stuff soon.

There was also some stuff left over from when the lot was a bar that I never saw open.

Angel Baby

There have been a couple new stencils here and there around town. Here's one from the corner of Da Long and Dong Hsing Rd.

An Empty Suit/Nice Threads

Saw this new stencil on the way home from work last night. I've seen another one or two somewhere but have already forgotten where.

Obligatory New Post

I just found a new outdoor gallery of Taichung graffiti art & will get out and get shooting just as soon as time permits. It's a motherlode. Looks like a kilometer of riverbank colored up on two sides.

In the meantime, check out Craig's "Wall Art Korea." Good stuff.
