June 2020 Featured Artist
SAVIE is the name, Graffiti is the game… Living and based in Holland. As a young kid in the mid eighties I sawthe movie “Stylewars" from Henry Chalfant… It blew my mind…and changed my life.. I bought directly markers and cans, and startedthis adventure..First tagging, and step by step throw ups and later pieces. My inspiration is coming from the NYC old-school period, (what you still can find in my work.) Stylewriters like DONDI, PHASE2, T-KID and SEEN inspired me when I was young and its still a part of my inspiration.When I find on the internet some unseen workfrom that period it still makes me happy!About my style, I really like to work big.. big letters clean and and readable.I love to work with a “bar" below my letters, it looks like its carries my name.. Working big and to get these big bars “straight” is sometimes a hell of a job, especially when its a fat wall, and no brick or grout can help you out… that sucks sometimes. When I was painting last weekend I heard somepeople say about my work “its old-school, butdipped in a funky fresh sauce” hahaha… :-) Please check out some of my pieces and judgeby yourself.

Being established in 2015 Hexx Inkworks’ personality is really expressed through his visual tone, with a background in Graffiti, Graphic Design, tattooing, skateboarding, Hardcore punk, and just general street culture.With starting his practice and producing for a year, he then got distracted by his interest in graffiti for a few years. But recently has decided to use the skills he learnt from writing, graphic design and artistic practice to establishhimself as a creative to turn his passion into a career. His work varies from black and white Illustrations typically of a dark or graffiti inspired nature. Letterforms of a sharp, traditional and gothic nature and the odd interesting experiment, such as film photography, casting resin, among other things. With his YouTube channel initially being created to document his process, such as speed art and painting videos, he eventually became popular for his How To videos and product review videos. He is currently getting commissions in the fields of Graphic Design, Art Direction, Logo Design (mainly wordmarks), Lettering, Branding, Advertisement along with a few other things.

I’ve been involved in writing since the age of 13. Drip came out in 2015. My favorite style? I like it ALL! From straight letters to wild style to just my own individual character. Resembles my love of water being a South Floridian and my love for paint. Drip is a liquid, comes in all different shapes and sizes.

Favorites are Boogie, Odeith, Vile, Styler, my boys Amuck, Risk, Tripa and Chase from the old days in West Aus and Johny DoubleC from Lisbon, but there heaps more.Graffiti has always been an artform that I have appreciated.

January 2020 Featured Artist
I am an artist in far north Queensland Australia. I go by a few aliases speshil k , sicarius but predominantly use the name spellborn. As a kid I was a naturally gifted artist, but during my teenage and young adult years diverted from art and got lost in substance abuse and addiction, needing to get back to myself and do something constructive with my life I started getting into my artwork again and for the last two years have been solely focused on graffiti. I was lucky enough to make a connection with a well known artist who had been in the graffiti and hip hop scene for quite a long time took me under his wing and became a somewhat of a mentor for me helping me develop my lettering and work on my style and technique across a few different mediums. Shout out to vixorcismz for all his encouragement and inspiration throughout my journey so far. I get my inspiration from many various parts of life and artists but mainly like the psychadelic cryptic wild style writing that plays with your vision and is some what alien like. However I also really like forgetting the writing altogether and just doing a character piece especially cartoons from the 90's, ren and stimpy would definitely have the at the top of the list. I like to paint alone or with one or two other people to keep it simple and chilled.Every piece I do I strive to go one better than my last and keep it evolving to inspire the next generation of writers I say this. Success isn't about comparing yourself to others it's more about trying to do better and be a better you than you were yesterday and dont give up!!!
