Article (Dutch): 'Graffiti en de kunstwereld' - Remko Koopman.
Begin jaren ‘80 weet een klein groepje Newyorkse ‘graffitiwriters’ met hulp van Nederlandse kunstverzamelaars en galeriehouders te infiltreren binnen de Europese kunstwereld. De rauwe Newyorkse spuitbuskunst, waarbij de naam van de writer en de originaliteit van de typografie (‘letterstyles’) centraal staat, verplaatst zich van de metrostellen via canvas naar de muren van het museum.
I was nicely surprised when in '96 at a graffiti jam in Cologne, Germany, I ran into Loomit and he told me he'd seen a movie with a piece of mine in it. The movie was called Basquiat and I had to go see it.

Being a commuter to Amsterdam Southeast, where my studio is located, I ride the subway frequently. I was impressed with the art project on the insides of the old subway cars in Amsterdam. To my point of view a perfect way to enhance the worn down 30 year old interior and give the people some art to look at.
