Traditional aerosol graffiti began in NYC during the 70's, spreading out from the Bronx, across the five boroughs and eventually transforming into the global phenomena it has become today.  Some of the finest examples of this art can still be found in pockets around the city, especially in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens.. Last week I watched a small crew working a long factory wall in the Bronx. Kids would pull up on bikes and skateboards to watch the masters (and local heros) as they balanced on stepladders with little more than a rough sketch, creating intricate freehand pieces that would often stretch 15 to 20 feet in width and height.   Hats off to them!
