BANDIT OF THE DAY #5 : KEMS
NAME , CREWS, BACKGROUND :I write Kem, Kems, Kemer and on a rare occasion Kem5. The multiply name adaptations fits well with my Gemini sensibilities. As for crews I push 3A, VMD, UPS, FLY ID, GSK.
All through high school I messed around with graff but my first real piece was done around 1994 on the tracks near my folks house just outside of Boston. It was a simple "Kem" piece painted with Krylon True blue, Mauve, White and Silver. I remember "cutting back" on some of the letters and thinking about how amzing it was. Graff pre-internet days seemed more exciting because the sense of discovery lasted longer. Today the shelf life and learning curve for most things have been greatly shortened.
1ST PIECE (where and when...) :
Way Of Life
Worth paying extra for high speed internet. Nothing worse than trying to watch a Grifters Episode on dial up.
Red Bull x Cliff Bars for painting days.
DRINK AND FOOD :
Coffee X Kind Bars for workdays
Bloody Marys X Brunch for Saturdays
Coke X Pizza in between
Currently: Frank Ocean, Childish Gambino, Dafrican and some random Metal sprinkled in.
Top 5 :
Coming To America
National Lampoons Vacation

Esential! I always carry around a good external battery pack that allows up to 3 full charges. Low Power 10% means your social life raft is going down.
