It’s Friday so that means it’s time for another thisismyNYMinute segment from Media Gasface. In this clip, German graf artists HOW and NOSM talk about how the TATS Cru repped for Pun on the day of his passing by painting their now famous memorial mural at 163rd and Rogers in the Bronx.
All white guys don’t look the same :
these two are twins > german-made twins!
So along with cars and weapons, Germany provides great graffiti artists as HOW and NOSM.

Here’s an extended trailer for Exit Through The Gift Shop, the upcoming documentary from filmmaker Terry Guetta about notoriously reclusive street artist Banksy.
Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by renowned graffiti artist Banksy, became the hottest ticket at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where it made its world debut. Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work can be seen on walls from post—hurricane New Orleans to the separation barrier on the Palestinian West Bank. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. Exit Through the Gift Shop tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. The film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the worlds most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, Its basically the story of how one man set out to film the un—filmable. And failed.
Bombing footage like that in the beginning of this clip always makes me want to come out of retirement. Exit Through The Gift Shop opens in theaters April 16th.
I didn’t realize this was out, I’m gonna have to check it out. The documentary features never before seen footage of the artist from the 2 years prior to his untimely death.
Directed by Tamra Davis.
World renowned tattoo artist Mister Cartoon is joined by legendary bombers COPE and SEN 2 to destroy the front windows of a couple of Metro PCS stores in the Bronx and Harlem. It’s no secret that corporations have been using graf in marketing campaigns for years now, but I can honestly say that I never thought I’d see the day that they’d let writers demolish their shit like this. I love it.

Evidence does a quick vlog about the book The History of Los Angeles Graffiti, Vol 1 by L.A. writer WISK WCA. Volume 2 is about to drop, and I’d like to check both of them out. While I consider myself pretty well versed on the history and lore of New York graf, I’m pretty much clueless when it comes to the intricacies of the L.A. scene. So yeah, if somebody wanted to send me “review” copies of these two books, I would definitely not refuse them. Ahem.
Check out the trailer for Vol. 2 after the jump.
