I just wanted to start this off by saying I really appreciate the space we are sitting in right now. 
I appreciate the music.

I’m trying to figure out if there is meaning here, these old-time songs with these everyday objects just passing by on this screen. Maybe there doesn’t need to be some choreography. I don’t know why I’m looking for the meaning. It can just be pleasant. Life can be pleasant. read more

There are two types of graffiti art that are worth mentioning. The first one is the sort that blows us away with its visual appearance. The second one is the kind that conveys a message and it actually makes you stop and think about what might be painted on the wall. If you, as a graffiti artist, are managing to simultaneously coexist in both of those categories – well, you’re doing something right. The art of the infamous Escif achieved both being wonderful for observing and having an important point to make. Only his work is not beautiful in the traditional sense of the word, but in an elegant, minimal way to which Escif stayed true for all of his career.
