“EXPRESS YOURSELF…BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY”
Graffiti Artist’s risk and sacrifice everything, sometimes more than our audience comprehends. With our weapon of choice, the Spray Can. We strive to speak with great volume amongst the crowd. Whether it’s getting up with our chosen nom-de-plumes, or expressing ourselves through art, regardless. Express yourself, by any means necessary.
‘Appropriation of the iconic Malcolm X phrase, in the last year of his life.’
The September 1964 issue of Ebony dramatized Malcolm X’s defiance of threats from the NOI (after leaving the Nation of Islam). By publishing a photograph of him holding an M1 carbine while peering out a window.
R.I.P. Malcom X.
May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965
