Uncapped: Connecting with New York Street Bomber ‘Easy’

Last modified February 10, 2017 at 10:33 am

Finally. An interview almost a year in the making for a man whose name currently sells on canvas for $5,000. He is easily (no pun intended) the most prolific bomber in NYC. Boogie faithful please welcome, EASY to our Uncapped series. Bowery Boogie: Thanks for joining us.  I cannot think of one person in the graffiti […]

Bronx Graffiti Writer ‘NEAR KGB’ Dies

Last modified January 20, 2017 at 12:21 pm

The graffiti community lost another one of its own this week. Bronx-based graff writer NEAR KGB (i.e. “Kings Getting Busy”) died on January 14. Another tragic loss to what?  We don’t know. A reader sent in the following message and suspects that drugs may have played a part. This has not been verified, though: Sadly […]

Posted November 11, 2016 at 9:33 am

We have a little rounding up to do since our graff baby Uncapped: Beneath the Paint series has blossomed into a movement. Hosting shows that The Source magazine covered. Twice. Writing for international websites, curating events, etc. We are kind of a big deal. Can I say that about us? Yeah, why not. Later tonight, Bowery […]

Posted August 3, 2016 at 5:17 am

Oh, what a night. A huge thank you to all who came out to show love and support at the Training Days show, a culmination of sorts for our ongoing Uncapped series. We had an amazing time, one that so many are still talking about, so we figured we’d share some pics on whatcha missed if you […]

Graffiti Scene Hard Hit with Drug Epidemic [OP-ED]

Last modified February 24, 2016 at 11:45 am

The following editorial was submitted to us by a member of the graffiti community who chose to remain anonymous. The tipster felt that, while our Uncapped: Beneath the Paint Series showcases the artists, the inherent struggles, and even death, there is a huge piece missing. Drugs. This is not an easy read, and it’s going to piss […]

Welcome back, peeps. In every “Uncapped” interview we have done thus far, the topic of street art versus graffiti has come up. And now again, as before… Bowery Boogie: Welcome Moody Mutz, perhaps the one person who can finally put an end to the controversy and the question. Tell us the difference and why you can relate. MM: […]

BOWERY BOOGIE: YO!  I listened to an interview where […]

Uncapped: Being a Woman in the Male-Dominated Graffiti Scene [OP-ED]

Posted November 12, 2015 at 10:47 am

No pictures, nor audio in this Uncapped session. Nothing. Just a candid collaborative effort by several female writers who have experienced humiliation and sexism while active in the graffiti scene. The world of graffiti, unbeknownst to many, is actually a world in and of itself. These ladies choose to remain anonymous (except one) for good reason. Let’s […]
