A quarter century of Non Stop Funk is quite the accomplishment; so renowned Bmore writers Arek and Stab decided to celebrate this milestone NSF Crew anniversary. Thanks to generous support from The Loading Dock, Inc. and Spray Planet by Montana Cans, the Bricks, Brews & Crews Paint Jam this past weekend was a spray-tacular success.
This inaugural event attracted graffiti writers from all parts of North America: Baltimore, DC, Jersey, Colorado, Oregon, and Montreal to name but a few places. The Loading Dock lot was abuzz with activity, and exciting new burners started taking shape all around. Let’s start our tour along the east wall:
Photographers and landscape artists praise the value of twilight’s golden light, but I have to admit capturing the beauty of that golden light often entails a sprinkling of serendipity. I returned to the Loading Dock one afternoon to photograph additional Bricks, Brews & Crews artwork. The light cooperated as I shot writer Adam Stab completing his piece (I will report on that wall `in an upcoming article), but then the sun disappeared behind clouds. I waited a bit, but the darkening cloud cover extended down to the horizon. Dull light equals dull photos, so I headed to my car and stowed my gear. Unexpectedly sunlight burst through the clouds. I jumped out of the car, grabbed my camera, and ran across the parking lot. The break in the clouds was tiny, so I knew I had little time to capture the golden light shining on the east wall. Sure enough, a few minutes later the sun vanished again behind the clouds for the evening. I call these fleet of foot photos serendipitous.
You can catch these and all the other artwork at The Loading Dock, Inc., 2 N Kresson Street. See their website for hours and directions.
Check back in a few days for coverage of the other graffiti writers at Bricks, Brews & Crews.
