    does anybody else out there think that "grift" and "drop" are the same person? I used to but now I am having my doubts!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 155 ✭✭Djddd1


    They are not the same and will never will be the same.

    The markers im talking about give the same effect as boot polish heads on boot polish markers. They sumtimes use it to write on windows because its easy to wipe off windows but not other surfaces

    Are you sure that is not etch?

    I think if you add a sachet of coffee granuals before it comes to the boil and let it simmer for a while it tastes so much better.

    grift is seriously the most impressive in my view... absolutely everywhere!! otto is another, alot of places tagged. very impressive. but i understand it must be a way of life, how long would it take to tag all those places!?! and dont even mention some of the pieces! grift has one on an old school off the N11 thats being knocked down for the "grange" housing estate... shame really... edit: it's actually rca and icn!

    hey there, have been reading the thread for a while but this is my first post. I dont write myself but I think graffiti is savage. I'm a video editor with a keen interest in photography, and whenever i go abroad i look out for good graffiti and take stills. Ive photographed it in Barcelona, Paris and Gdansk (poland). And obviously Dublin. Im getting a proposal together for a documentary on graffiti in ireland. I found this thread at the beginning of my research, and it was deadly reading it from start to finish! Theres a couple of characters who I'd be really interested in tlking to if they were willing, although i suspect that some people might not like the idea of a documentary being made. Anyway, if anyone fancies sharing their thoughts with me itd be great to hear from you.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 155 ✭✭Djddd1


    Well if you have read the forum I own then you will understand what I think. It would be great to see a graffiti documentry. Do you know when it will be done?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,217 ✭✭✭FX Meister


    I heard the finished effects are being put on at the moment and it's due to hit cinemas in August.

    u seruos....souds good


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,217 ✭✭✭FX Meister


    Yeah, it's going to be really good. I managed to get a bootleg copy. It's got the Grift interview before they blur his face and made his voice deep so you couldn't recognise him. Or should I say her!!!!!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,217 ✭✭✭FX Meister


    Documentary on graffiti sounds good, anyone think its gonna increase people thinking that since they've seen the doc, that they know all there is about graffiti ! Might start a new style of graffiti with builder paint ! :cool:
    No, I don't think it will make people think that. People already use builders paint as you call it. Look up Revs and Amaze and you'll see.

    Why did you delete your post? Hmmmmmmmmmm

    Milk has the same stuff plastered around dublin.Fair be it alright stuff. Milks characters are not too bad either.UEK's face is my fave tbh.Ive been tagging for quite a bit now.I feel Ive gotten alot better.Not better than most of the lads such as FOES or CIST, but its rather crew worthy.
    Dublins graffitti is extremely prosperous and is definatly getting more and more attention from media.With this comes toy tags etc, which are unbelievably terrible.
    The best taggers Ive seen must be FOES,PHEK,and alot of the UEK fellas.

    foes is a crew...maybe u know dat but da way ya wrote doesn sound like ya do..... :D:D

    i havent submitted a proposal for it yet so no,it wont be in cinemas by august! although the response was pretty humourous. it would be deadly to track down grift if anyone knows him, and thinks he'd be interested. although he might have to go into hiding once people see his face (to protect himself from the fans)
    seriously though, anyone who writes- would love to chat to you.

    Actually I figured FOES was a tagger seeing as I was watching as he did a piece outside Allcity, seen his tag foes, foesuek and I basically gathered that seeing as uek was with foes it was his tag. I rarely, if ever see two crews tags together though.If FOES is a crew, then what does it stand for?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 155 ✭✭Djddd1


    That was Kube and He ment Kube friends All city and Foes Uek is seen mainly were permission is sough to paint, Hense them the meanning Friends/Foes Uek. It is person nore kru.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,192 ✭✭✭Dathai


    Well the guy that did the piece has some skill anyways. Oh and Djddd1 whats your tag?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,217 ✭✭✭FX Meister


    Foes started off meaing F*uck Off, just FO. Then it became plural, sort of like FOs. Originnated by Dice and Trie.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 155 ✭✭Djddd1


    Yes Kube has alot of skill. I don't write. What do you write? But Fx I was told it meant Friends. *Plese note I'm not say it does'nt mean that aswell.
