GRAFITTI: Writers in Paris
What started in the Bronx (some argue it was Philadelphia) in the late 70’s is now entrenched in Paris.
A lot of it is motivated by the anger of young kids growing up in the “banlieu,” the projects that surround Paris.
But a lot of it is taken quite seriously and sold in galleries. Among the seminal figures is a kid who grew up in East Harlem, Jon One.
