Artist of the Week: Unconventional Graffiti Artist Above

Artist of the Week: Unconventional Graffiti Artist Above | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it
Love it or hate it, graffiti has revolutionized the way we think of art. It is anarchic, untamed, ephemeral at times, and difficult.
Webgrrl's insight:

Unconventional #Graffiti Artist Above

"Pixel 77 takes a look at one of the most original graffiti artists there is. He goes by the name Above, and he keeps his real identity a secret. He was born in 1981 in California, and has been active on the scene since back in 1996, when he was only 15 years old. He developed his trademark upward arrow signature when he was 18, stating that he wanted something instantly recognizable, since at the time he was spray-painting trains, and wanted something distinguishable even as the train was moving fast."

this is great ~ reminds me of something similar long time (early year 2000) that i used within 'Virtual Places' ~ where me and friends can go 'browsing/surfing' together or in group. Infact at VP you could even launch a 'transport' avatar and the group can hop in into the 'van' or 'bus' etc..

Think this is great for teaching someone something (instead of having to do captures) and also for business use..
