“You didn’t have a great deal of input – and the enter you did have had a good deal of affect!,” suggests abstract painter Jeroen Erosie (b.1976, Netherlands) about his beginnings as a graffiti writer in the early 1990s. The revelation of seeing new works in print or on road partitions was not some thing to be taken for granted, as with thumbing by way of an Instagram feed.

Tracing the evolution of an artist from graffiti creating to personalized lifetime and expert art practice – this is what some broadly refer to as Submit-Graffiti. With graffiti at its genesis, it is also interesting to witness how practices and strategies progress in later periods at the hand of more mature practitioners.

Borhes suggests one of the aspects she admired of Blackwood’s previously documentaries authorized the viewer, “This possibility to see how they talked, to abide by their feelings, gestures.”
