5PTZ New York

imag0553

 

In October 2012, I travelled to NYC and got the chance to paint at the historic 5PTZ, formerly known as the Candy Factory at 23rd & Jackson. I got the opportunity from Meres, who runs this graffiti hall of fame, literally hours before I had to fly back to Toronto. I decided to do an Arabic piece to leave my mark on 5PTZ, and wrote “BISM” which means “In the name of” (the most high). Gotta show mad love to Uli (with me in pic above) who helped me make it happen – Danilo’s younger bro in Jamaica, Queens. SPAZECRAFT (SC) – an old school writer doing innovative programs in graffiti education – was also on the scene, breaking down the history of some of the legends that have blessed 5PTZ. And Jessica Lehrman, a photographer for Rolling Stones, helped document the ceremonial piecing.
