24 Street Quotes and Poems - Jerm XI


A self-described lost soul, Jerm IX is an artist who has left over 2,000 stenciled poems and notes throughout the streets. These thought-provoking sayings have been carefully placed in urban environments adding context and depth to each piece. As Jerm IX states, "Placed in the right location, certain quotes tend to evoke a particular emotion." The idea was to "place them in areas that allow for the viewer to be reflective or provoked."

In contrast to the direct quotes, his "scrolls" series is more lyrical. As he states, "now that my work has evolved to poetry scrolls i have merged my songwriting and street art, which has allowed me to work in my favorite format, my obsession, rhyme patterns."

"My every thought is in the form of rhyme patterns, even my dreams are on beat."
