Style Wars is an early documentary on hip hop culture, made by Tony Silver and Henry Chalfant in New York City, 1983.

Wild Style - Legendary New York graffiti artist Lee Quinones plays the part of Zoro, the city’s hottest and most elusive graffiti writer. The actual story of the movie concerns the tension between Zoro’s passion for his art and his personal life, particularly his strained relationship with fellow artist Rose. But this isn’t why one watches Wild Style—this movie is *the* classic hip-hop flick, full of great subway shots, breakdancing, freestyle MCing and rare footage of one of the godfathers of hip-hop, Grandmaster Flash, pulling off an awesome scratch-mix set on a pair of ancient turntables.

Advice on Making Stencils, by Banksy
  • mindless vandalism can take a bit of thought.
  • Nothing in the world is more common than unsuccessful people with talent, leave the house before you find something worth staying in for.
  • Think from outside the box, collapse the box and take a fucking sharp knife to it.
  • A regular 400ml can of paint will give you up to 50 A4 sized stencils. This means you can become incredibly famous/unpopular in a small town virtually overnight for approximately ten pounds.
  • Try to avoid painting in places where they still point at airplanes.
  • Spray the paint sparingly onto the stencils from a distance of 8 inches.
  • When explaining yourself to the Police it’s worth being as reasonably as possible. Graffiti writers are not real villains. I’m always reminded of this by real villains who consider the idea of breaking in someplace, not stealing anything and then leaving behind a painting of your name in four foot high letters the most retarded thing they ever heard of.
  • Be aware that going on a major mission totally drunk out of your head will result in some truly spectacular artwork and at least one night in the cells.
  • The easiest way to become invisible is to wear a day-glo vest and carry a tiny transistor radio playing Heart FM very loudly. If questioned about the legitimacy of your painting silly complain about the hourly rate.
  • Crime against property is not real crime. People look at an oil patting and admire the use of brushstrokes to convey meaning. People look at a graffiti painting and admire the use of a drainpipe to gain access.
  • The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Fame is a by-product of doing something else. You don’t go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit.
