Style Wars

Hi guys. Today I present you a movie that had a lasting effect on my life. Respectively my lifestyle. Until now. And forever, I’m pretty sure. An effect regarding a culture. The culture of hip hop.

A holy movie for me. Style Wars is the name of this audiovisual treasure and it comes straight from New York City of the 80s. A documentation with graffiti as main content, but also including the hip hop elements rap and breakdance.

Focused on the total perspective because it also contains interviews of police officers and the mayor and not just artists. A sprayed creation does not automatically mean art for everybody. In most cases it also means illegality. And cowardice for me.
