Very cool documentary coming out by Director Jon Reiss about the subculture of graffiti and its effect on shaping our youths perception of art.
BOMB IT takes you through the history of graffiti - from its origins in prehistoric cave paintings thru its notorious explosion in New York City during the 70's and 80's, then follows the flames as they paint the globe.
I like this quote they have on their website for the movie.
"Graffiti belongs to everyone and no one. On a section of a condemned wall, I put up a graffito... a bank director stopped the construction work, had my carving cut out as a fresco and inlayed it in the wall of his apartment."
- Pablo Picasso
