2020

It has been 2 years since the last update of this blog. Many things have happened and we must archive those on this blog in the upcoming posts.

One of the reasons why there has been a lack of updates on this blog was the way social media took over the publication of artists' new works. During the pre-Facebook era, the blog served as a hub where people browse new street art and other works in the local context.  It is same also from the other art blogs during that time. Even though we had other social media accounts before like Friendster, Multiply and Myspace, the blog was still our central hub. It changes starting 2010 when Facebook was gaining attraction to us. The Facebook algorithm was so good that it forces us to post more updates on their platform and it was a good experience also.

The reason also we are posting again on the blog is we want to bring back the pre-Facebook era where this blog is the center of our activity online, shared only to those who type the url on a browser. The social media in 2020 is not the same as10 years ago. The social media feed in our timeline is curated by complex algorithms we don't comprehend. 

Because it is hosted by google, we are not claiming that this blog is free from those kind "manipulations" but I guess we just want to bring the feel of typing on the address bar and wait what's the current happenings.

Stay tuned for more updates!

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 http://pilipinastreetplan.blogspot.com/2009/03/tie-one-19791998-rip.html 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  http://saberone.com/blog/2009/
