  1. that is so fuckin gay it makes me sick. Like I wanna look at some guy in his long johns wearing a gas mask having a fuckin cartoon painted on him by some blonde disco whore wannabe and have it shoved into my eyeballs under the title ‘graff’
    Can someone let me know what the fuck ‘graff’ and ‘graffers’ is doing in the title of this wankfest?
    How about ‘body painting trendy fagfest’…probably more appropriate.
    Go out and fuckin write your name on something and stop bastardizing and diluting real graffiti.

  2. Oh! Have a cry you precious little baby.

  3. neck up cunt!!! bridge is an writter and a artist prob burn you
    unosedro .. and all writers in the projects are well respected in there states and the country do ur research before posting cunt!!

  4. ‘body painting trendy fagfest’ – LOL

    Dboe – i highly doubt that you’d be making that comment if you knew who he was.

  5. valid point james!! a fewof us that were part of the project and we’re far from trendy fags hahaha!!some of us putting work for next to 20 yrs now…just backin up a mate as anyone else would!!
    but i understand arking up over people raping our culture, i do it all the time hahaha but bridge use to write too!!

  6. I’ve been asked to retract my comments from this blog in fear of disturbing the peace in the virtual street artist land blogosphere. So I must shut my mouth and shouldn’t challenge anyone or try and protect what means a lot more to me than the oversaturated, glossed up, soulless image we now call street art..

    BUT…I just want to add this..

    simply… just call yourself ‘artists’ NOT ‘graffers’ or ‘graffiti artists’. All you are doing is ‘art’, and there’s nothing wrong with you doing what you want to do..
    Just don’t try and associate yourself with graffiti or pass yourself off as graff in order to appear more ‘street’ or ‘cool’. You may have been a writer in the past, but that doesn’t make what I see above any closer to graffiti. It has zero to do with it and is blasphemous to suggest it does.
    In fact, if you really want a career in art, then my best advice is to try and disassociate yourself from graffiti entirely, start using your real name, and do it somewhere where nobody knows who you really are.

  7. You have a point there old timer, but this harmless fun, bridge is cool, and you should turn your guns on something more deserving.

  8. ‘old timer’ ????? WTF?
    How about I just choose to not look at this blog and never comment (btw -this has incited the first comments on this blog in ages…it’s tumbleweed without some discussion started)

    I’m happy for someone to argue their point – in fact I’m not even offended when someone above calls me a cunt. Bring it on – let’s get some passionate discussion going here..
    or is this your own little ‘happy picture club’, ‘for us, by us’, ‘no outsiders’ in ‘don’t be nasty town’?

    I love the way you can only say nice comments on blogs or else you upset the sensitive little people who choose to open themselves up for it!! If you don’t want comments then turn the fucking things off. And if you don’t want people’s scrutiny or opinion then don’t post your stuff up on the internet for everyone to see.

    nuff said.

  9. And I quote :

    “Graffiti
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    For other uses, see Graffiti (disambiguation).
    For historical graffiti, see Graffito (disambiguation).

    Juan de Oñate’s inscription at El Morro National Monument, 1605, with later graffiti
    Graffiti (singular: graffito; the plural is used as a mass noun) is the name for images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property. Graffiti is any type of public markings that may appear in the forms of simple written words to elaborate wall paintings. Graffiti has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.[1]
    In modern times, paint, particularly spray paint, and marker pens have become the most commonly used graffiti materials. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property owner’s consent is considered defacement and vandalism, which is a punishable crime. Sometimes graffiti expresses social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. To some, it is an art form worthy of display in galleries and exhibitions; to others it is merely vandalism. Graffiti has evolved into a pop culture existence often related to underground hip hop music, b-boying, and a lifestyle that remains hidden from the general public.[2] Graffiti can be used as a gang signal to mark territory or to serve as an indicator or “tag” for gang-related activity.
    Controversies that surround graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials/law enforcement and graffitists who wish to display and appreciate work in public locations. There are many different types and styles of graffiti and it is a rapidly developing artform whose value is highly contested, reviled by many authorities while also subject to protection, sometimes within the same jurisdiction.”

    Hmmn looks like it qualifies to me, and let’s face it dude, your ignorant comments serve no purpose but to make you like like a complete hater, with some serious insecurities, from the little I know of graff, I was under the assumption it was all about breaking convention, not conforming to someone elses opinion of what it is and what it is not, besides, if you don’t like it, you can turn off your computer, go out and paint some mad trains lad, tell all your mates what a heaps sick cunt you are, and enjoy your life, your only real point is a choice of words you clearly have spent no time researching.

    Spend your time on something positive douche’, real tough guys don’t bully little girls.

  10. i tend to agree with most of whats been said so its hard to have a discussion without 2 separate opinions.
    I’ve always agreed that there’s no point to go under an alias unless you were doing consistent illegal damage on the street. The art world is completely different to the street world and should be separated. I find it hard that artists can be known as street artists or graffiti artists if they havn’t done a considerable amount of time on the street.
    Its a shame that the name street art has been tainted because alot of the artists in the scene use it as a stepping stone to the galleries and then completely leave it behind after the transfer.

  11. Now look what you’ve done, you’ve gone an encouraged someone to copy and paste wikipedia quotes as the basis of an flimsy argument.

    I hope your happy with yourself.

  12. so i wasnt gonna get involved until i read westsydes utterly retarded comment..

    thanks for posting a wikipedia link you spazmo-shitcunt… wtf? are you spaz or something?!?

    regardless of definitions and whether it is TECHNICALLY graff, it is totally wak to associate it with graffiti when it is indeed, a cute girl painting gay little animals on some douchey looking dudes back in the safety of some homo’s gay studio..

    i have nothing against it myself, and i really dont care about graff a great deal either but i can completely understand where uno’s coming from. the rest of your comments in the opposition sound like your friends of bridges and are leaping to her rescue.. and you have the fucking nerve to treat unos comments as if they’re ignorant and invalid.. fucking toy.

    you all gotta be honest with yourselves and admit that despite what other artwork you do and how educated, respected or appreciative of ‘real graff’ you might be, this is undeniably pretty lame (i mean the art and gimmicky marketing of the project)

  13. dear westsyde, after making my first scrawl on a wall around 1982, I may just be qualified to comment on the evolution of graffiti in Australia. A little more than your quick research on wikipedia. (a superb place to do research!!)

    I wasn’t talking about painting trains, or even what was painted and… I wasn’t being a ‘tough guy’, just noting the absurdity of posting some body art and labeling it ‘graffiti’.
    You seem to have taken this personally because as you state you know very little of graff’, you’re very young, and a friend of those who’s art I questioned.

    …and why is it that all you youngsters over there in WA like to use the word ‘cunt’ so much?
    You may have offended girls a lot more than I have through your use of that word.

  14. And I quote:
    Body painting
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Body painting, or sometimes bodypainting, is a form of body art. Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin, and lasts for only several hours, or at most (in the case of Mehndi or “henna tattoo”) a couple of weeks. Body painting that is limited to the face is known as face painting. Body painting is also referred to as (a form of) temporary tattoo; large scale or full-body painting is more commonly referred to as body painting, while smaller or more detailed work is generally referred to as temporary tattoos.

  15. I would just like to point out that I am merely responding to the ‘phenomena’ titled ‘Graffiti on Girls’. I’m not attempting to align myself with an art movement in order to better my career. I’m making a genuine statement about something I feel passionate about. I may not have been painting since 1982 but I have been painting for the better part of twelve years. Graffiti is where I came from and it’s what got me started. I never had any intention of offending anyone or being disrespectful to Graff, I owe everything to it. I only hoped to make a point about Graffiti on Girls and the place of women in Graffiti. My ‘status’ as a ‘Graffer’ is completely irrelevant, the only person I’m naming as a ‘graffer’ is the artist I’m painting. Furthermore, it’s supposed to be playful, not offensive. Unless, you happen to be female ‘Unosedro’, It’s quite possible I would be wasting my breath by attempting to appeal to you. You are quite entitled to your opinion but don’t attempt to insult my person by calling me names. I can’t help being blonde, I was born that way and surely the way I dress is irrelevant. By making chauvinistic remarks you are only helping me to prove my point.

    Additionally, if you are going to be a bigot and make jibes at people’s sexual orientation with words like ‘gay’ and ‘fag’ you can just fuck off. That’s just completely unnecessary and out of place in this day and age, baby doll.

  16. P.S ‘Unosedro’, If you would like to be featured for #8, just let me know. Perhaps you would care to be photographed atop your high horse?.

  17. nice one Bridge. Glad you put some more words here. I like your writing. You sound intelligent, and have argued your point nicely. Quite a lot more constructively and sincerely than the other guys above. Funny you talk a bit about the place of women in this culture, as I went to your ‘boys’ website ‘westsyde’ and all i see is a bunch of guys surrounding some porn star looking women in bikinis. I may be calling names but I certainly aren’t living that life..
    That’s the second time you’ve called me baby too – I may just take you up on your offer of #8. I’ll bring the gay horse along just to make things a bit more interesting.

  18. Thank you, first of all for the above comment and again for actually bothering to question my motives. No one had really done that and I like to argue occasionally. So do you from what I can see.

    As for ‘westsyde’, (not, in fact, situated on the ‘westsyde’ of Australia at all but rather the inner-‘westsyde’ of Sydney) they are indeed my ‘boys’ and considering they give me a great deal of support and a studio I feel I should probably say that whilst I’m not huge on that photo either, It’s been my understanding that it is meant to be ironic as most pictured have about $15 in their wallets (collectively) and are too young to even get girls.

    That offer is dead bloody serious.

    and hey, sorry for the bigot remark, I probably wouldn’t have made it if I’d known your horse was gay.

    Peace.

  19. Oh hey ‘Dr Rape’ or should I say ‘Jagi’ (I’m not really sure why you bothered with that stupid nickname), if I ignore all the nasty, poorly punctuated shit you said about me, you called me ‘cute’.
    Thanks! x

  20. The truth is I’m an overweight 12 year old virgin, I have poor eyesight, and struggle with drawing stick figures, I walk because I can’t afford the bus. I just used Westsyde’s link to make myself look cool.

    glad you guys have sorted out your beef, or chicken or tofu or whatever.

    🙂

  21. Dr. rape (jagi dreamstalker)

    yeah i know.. i tried to post it anonymously under the Dr. rape pseudonym but the blog auto identified me somehow?…(internets getting way too smart..)

    but anyway, i didnt actually say anything bad about you or the people involved.. except for “some homos gay studio” but i hope language like that is taken very lightheartedly.

    i thought my criticism was directed at the project itself.. its just a very gimmicky and unsophisticated concept was my point. cute fluffy animals reading porn are fine on their own..

    oh but most importantly i was condemning the people who were attacking unos comments by labeling him a bigot and a hater..
    theres a big difference between being a hater out of bitterness and having high expectations of art backed up by ones one intelligence and knowledge.
