BRING BACK THE OLD SPRAY PAINT STYLE FROM THE VARRIOS


Those 'spiral' letras the bato is hitting up right there...
let me tell you,...those were one of the very LAST new letra forms to come out.
And that was back in the early 90's.
I know cause I used to throw them too.
I aint seen that style of letras ANYWHERE since then.
Used to be in the old days, 60's, 70's, 80's,..homeboys were inventing new forms every couple of years. Those were great times for a true plaquero.

Today??

Man,...I aint seen no new letras in like 15 years holmes.

Think about that chet.
Thats unbelievable.

Its all gone wrong holmes.
Its a tragedy.
I dont see alot of care or respect in the lines today.
No more love for the artform.
No more development.
Its like the whole thing came to a screeching halt.
All I see are troche y moche rounded colored squares. Thats all.


I put alot of the blame on those taggers with their gacho ass scrawlings.
Once they came along and started infesting the walls in the 90's....that was it.
They changed the whole environment in the Varrios.
