who is ubec? by uzi

Ubec is a collective of individuals who share a passion for street and/or street-related art, and a common dislike for police authority (pun intended). As its name suggests, Ubec is not stereotyped into a particular subculture but constitutes Cebu Street Art in general.
Ubec, therefore, is not an exclusive crew, but is open to everyone who shares the same interest in graffiti and sticker art. It's currently recognized members are influenced by different musical tastes, have different jobs, and go to different schools (as a matter of fact, only 1 of its current members actually goes to school).
The Ubec Crew does not claim to be the best, or the first, or the fastest, or the meanest, or the gayest crew. What Ubec wants is to somehow create a single, unified circle of Cebuano street artists.
Ubec started out as strangers who literally met each other while doing street art. Its core lies in its history, and a new sticker on the wall meant a new affiliate.

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
