Graffiti is art from the heart
Infamy, a film we saw last year at the ResFest has been released on DVD and it’s fantastic! a must see for anyone who wants to know more about this conflicted urban art form. It’s a movie that answers the question “Why do they do it?” and takes you deep into the wide diversity of the art, style nuances, street rules and passion and pain behind it. It stars our friend Claw and she kicks-ass.

“Take an intense journey into the dangerous lives and obsessed minds of six of America’s most prolific graffiti artists. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Doug Pray (“Hype!” and “Scratch”) who teamed up with graffiti guru Roger Gastman, the movie takes you deep into the world of street legends Saber, Toomer, Jase, Claw, Earsnot and Enem. With brutal honesty, humor and charisma, these artists reveal why they are so willing to risk everything to spray paint their cities with “tags,” “throwups” and full-color murals.”
