PUTAIN! in paris tomorrow. // 9.12.2014
Applying paint on public transport without permission is a senseless occupation: It’s dangerous, illegal and often disliked. At the end of one’s career there is no big prize, no glory, no golden watch. So what motivates these artists to follow their passion?
Freedumb is not trying to give an answer to anything. It is a discovery, a trip into the unknown, a documentation, without a pre-casted opinion. Like the graffiti on public transport, it just is. The photos from prominent artists Taps & Moses, Utah & Ether and Phil America simply show you what’s happening in the painter world underneath you. They just are, and they will be, whether you love it, hate it or don’t care.
Freedumb alludes to the typical, dark Grifters humor. The search for freedom is a central theme in the world of graffiti.
The proceeds of the show will go entirely to support The Grifters that are currently dealing with legal issues.
