Utterly Wild Style.


phase2Feast your eyes, folks, on the above test pattern. It’s from my personal collection, and was actually produced by yours truly: An embroidered reproduction of a compass-shattering piece by Phase II, writer, artist, musician (right), and historian in the trade of aerosol art.

After eyeing this immaculate conception in Phase and David Schmdlapp’s 1996 treatise, Style: Writing from the UnderGround, I strove to have it perfectly captured in thread, with the goal of licensing the design directly from the master. While those plans haven’t taken off yet, the image is so intricate and fetching that I use it as a desktop. But if you’re cogitatin’ about doin’ the same…don’t bite my style.

Phase II is one of the most important artists of our era!! The originator of arrows and wild style, where would graffiti be without him?

P2 is the best aerosol artist New York City ever produced. The style you have there is so complex it is quite sick and beautiful, I only wish it was up in the streets on a huge scale so that you can feel the power it has. Anyone have a wall and some cash to donate to this? Maybe P2 would take on a public art commission?

thats a bold statement ket
there are equals to phase 2
BLADE for instance, and many under the radar kings!!
BUT PHASE 2 is the one of best at articulating and breaking down graffiti

Mr. Sniff…In spite of what Blade may have done on the trains back in thr day for anyone to call him an “EQUAL” to PHASE 2 whos contributions has forever defined and influenced the art? That’s just something that could never be.

If you want to say so on the matter of getting up…which PHASE did even before Blade actually as one of the Bronx writers who set the precedent for guys like Superkool 223…whatever.

Oh sure eventually Blade got up more. But as far as being a pivitol component of the writing movements movement…No diss to the man but Blade will never be in the same class. EVER. Get educated.
