go back to the streets

Go back to the streets…………. We are writing this article in reaction to the events happened last week. First of all we are sad that the Jones Avenue pieces were buffed by the so- called cleaners in this city. Although it was made illegally, but the pieces were made passionately by the artists and we really disagree if the authority will say that those pieces were made by mindless individuals who just want to make shit on the walls! We are not destroying this city! In fact these bullshit politicians, greed capitalists and structured religion are doing it! Look at the streets!. How many no-sense giant billboards?..The campaign posters of the politicians? it not “vandalism”?... Yes it isn’t!. Because this society is their property!.... We are not here attacking the very nature of street art which is being ephemeral!. What we like to say is that this city doesn’t have a taste for art!..
The second, point is that about the events happened on the last event of Ubec Crew!. The outcome was nothing but a “beef”..We don’t know what really happened because most of us went to a bed party enjoying the drips of saliva!. Anyway, the beef part of the event resulted when the taggers and Junk made a piece outside the “legal walls”…Too much for the details!.. Anyway, we are inspired by non-sense writers!. Lets go back to the topic!...The events showed that this movement is still an expression of counter culture!.....As artists we don’t want rules and the only rule is to break the rules!. to defy the structure of the norms!.. But let us not forget that entering into it follows subjection to the organizers’ will!. Of course they want their place to be “nice”, “good looking”etc base on their aesthetic tastes if they have!…On one of the interview of Obey he said that street art cannot be mainstream!. the style and the form could be but the real act of doing it cannot be!......

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone

Wrap-Up Week-End

Garapata in Bacolod . Many artists from all over the archipelago went to Bacolod last Nov. 13-16, 2014 to participate for the Viva Excon 2014.  The art event is more of a traditional art event rather  than a "primary flight-ish" or !ha? but it didn't  stop street artists to do what they do best. Paint Jam by Soika, Buen Abrigo and    Cori Franchesca Co in Bacolod  Garapata Stop Over in Cebu. He painted with cebuano local street artists, Soika (a Viva Excon Participant), WR, Bart and CrazyMaggot. Free Anting-Anting . Sprouting in Talamban, Cebu City. Really nice to see street art in Cebu making a comeback with new talents. I thought the difference between Cebu and Manila is that the former ceased to produce new talents while the latter had an endless supply. I was wrong! Yummy in Busay. Yummy is Bart's younger brother. He is quite unique in Cebu, and has a distinct inking style. Dr. Karayom for ESC Project Escol
