Acrylic, spray paint, and paint marker on 24″x24″ wood
All of these tags are real ones, mostly from 80’s and 90’s New York and Los Angeles, with a few others thrown in. They range from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Lady Pink, from Keith Haring to random scrawls on a subway. There’s also a few historical ones mixed in, like Kilroy Was Here, Bozo Texino, and an Eye of Horus from ancient Egypt! There are three from my personal history: How I sign my name now, how I signed my name when I was a teenager (and that my teenage brother uses now!), and a cat that my mom had put up on our garage to piss off a neighbor who had shot one of our cats with a pellet gun.
It was a lot of fun researching all of these tags and matching their writing style.
