BSP ARTIST SERIES - INTRODUCTION

Featured Graffiti Artists 

Being a graffiti writer isn't easy, due to the constant bad publicity from the media the general public looks down upon us and thinks anybody painting graffiti is part of a gang or into some other crime. Because of this we have been forced into living a double life.

There are graffiti writers who have been painting most of their lives and never expected anything to come from it they do it only for the passion of creating something amazing that wasn't there yesterday and could be buffed by tomorrow morning.

The writers featured in our first Artist Series are all dedicated to this sub culture some with over 30 years in the game. When we were coming up with the idea of an Artist Series we decided that we wanted to take each artists strength and create a design that reflects that. The finished product is the realest graffiti clothing you can get.

Introducing the first three Sydney graffiti writers.

 KADE

KADE BSP ARTIST SERIES TEESBSP ARTIST SERIES KADE

Kade is a Sydney writer who started painting in the mid 80's, catching the train from Bondi to Redfern he was inspired by the early burners appearing on the lines. His style is a direct derivative of NYC subway era.

Painting in the 80's we had to find stuff out for ourselves...there were no graff shops or youth programs.
It was all trial and mostly error haha.
We stole all our paint, made our markers and hung out of moving trains to get up for fame.  - KADE

SET ONE from Sydney has been painting for over 15 years and is a versatile writer producing burners and fresh public styles. A true master of improvisation moulding his piece to it's surroundings making it look like it's supposed to be there.

 I just paint the kind of graffiti I like to look at I suppose. Doesn’t everyone do that? I mean, if you aren’t getting much personal satisfaction out of what you are doing then you should probably question why the fuck you bother to do it. - SET ONE

DAYS

DAYS ONE is a graffiti writer from Sydney. He has been painting since 88 and rocks some of the freshest styles Sydney has seen. From panels and tracksides back in the day until now where he makes a living off his creative skills. 

I grew up around Newtown, Erskineville and Redfern in the mid to late 80’s and it was the right time at the right place for someone like myself who needed an artistic outlet. I was a break-dancer before I was a writer so I knew a little about graffiti through hip hop in general. Once I started tagging I eventually progressed through to throw-ups, bombing, piecing and meeting other writers. - DAYS
