Thanks for checking!
We though we’d add a little content on some of the other stuff going on rather than our workshop jazz
… so here, we’re launching our fortnightly WRITER FEATURE:
NICKOS: TFB PWS CBM
“I’m NICKOS 35, from North East England…been into graffiti since 86-87, stopped through the 90′s and reactiveated about 3 years ago.”
“In the early days,(the first wave of hip hop)there was a scene in my hometown, graffiti, breakin, hip hop jams:
Hip hop and graffiti was here, at one point there must of been 10 writers in my town, as the music fashion changed to indie, hip hop and graffiti died out…..no more fresh pieces n my hometown, so i kinda chilled from painting and got into the rave and football scene……in this time i still went to Newcastle just to take photos of the graffiti, this happened from about 1990, about every few months i,d go just to ride the Metro, get off and take pics. This happened for years…..(More, kas, Hope, Mane, Zee, Cike) massive influences to me and many more……..
To me Newcastle is mini mecca for style, theres been so many good writers from the Toon,and still has a quality scene…..”
“Nowadays i just tend to paint chill walls with my responsibilities and all that jazz . I tend to paint old school style pieces, it’s all the styles and shapes that i missed out on painting in the 90s. For me i personally like styles from 88 – 94 ish,and UK stuff. My main influences would be Cazbee, Foam, Cast, Skore, Snatch, Seen, Jepsy, Skeme, Mr Zee, Icea, MTV, DRX, ROK, TTK, TCA,and BBC.
I started a crew 2 years ago: TFB: The Fresh Bastads:
This consists of 8: Cal, Eyes,Vano, Hicks, Fetus,the Thoup Twinz, and I. We mainly paint in the North East……..check it… I also rep for the PWS crew (Paintwaisters) and CBM crew (Children Born Mental):
BIG UP THE FAMILIES!
MORE SOON IN WRITER FEATURE!
