Graffiti in the 90’s exploded BIG time in Cape Town. GRIM and SUBIZM, cousins from the Cape Flats, show the crew from the PASELA TV show how to scout out, plan and execute a graffiti piece.
“In 2010, the infamous RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ took one final apprentice within his movement of “GOTHIC FUTURISM.” After months of mechanical & design apprenticeship, he was awarded title of “D-ONE”, authorized to race tank style letters & given the duty of “IKONOKLAST PANZERIST”. This legacy continues through D-One aka “DR.ZVLV” & the other soldiers in the “TAG MASTER KILLERS” army of assassins… ”
“Evolutionary, symbolic & functional with building blocks armed to destroy. These letter forms are not a toy.”
“I met up with Castle during my 5 month study in Wellington, New Zealand. Coming from South Africa, Ivan has an interesting background that forms his perspectives and pieces to be unlike any I’ve really seen before. There is a great array of graffiti style artwork in the area, and much of it coming from his crew, Pirates. It was great to get to talk and paint with an artist of the area and see how perspectives on art like this change country to country.”
