R.I.P Ekons

The loss of one of Cape Town’s greatest writers, Ekon/Amp37 (40HK/WK?/YMB), was felt throughout the graffiti community this week. A tribute jam will be held this weekend to honour him.

“I’ve always had graffiti in my heart but have taken breaks here and there. I was once in a bad place in life and I thought about what has made me the happiest – and that was graffiti… Graffiti is very personal and a challenge to yourself, to prove you are original and have skills to back up your name.”
