1XRUN has some new Anti-graffiti propaganda posters up for sale along with posters/ artwork from the documentary film “The Legend of Cool Disco Dan”, all by Roger Gastman – check them out here!
From the Artist: “This piece continues within the Tools of Criminal Mischief series of spray paint cans and markers prints that I’ve been doing with 1xRun. I have a large collection of anti-graffiti paraphernalia: pamphlets, signs, pins, tee shirts, etc. This image was revisited and fine tuned in 2013 but it’s taken years and years of collecting and digging along with close friends sending me stuff. I am always on the hunt for more. ” – Roger Gastman
From 1XRUN: “The Legend of COOL “DISCO” DAN is a feature documentary narrated by D.C. native Henry Rollins that tells the story of Washington, D.C. in the 1980s through the eyes of D.C. graffiti legend, COOL “DISCO”DAN. Blending exclusive interviews with dozens of local and national celebrities along with archival footage, Washington natives offer the most comprehensive portrait to date on this critical decade. The development of Go-Go, D.C.’s distinctive style of urban music, racial tensions, crews, sensationalist media, crack, and graffiti are important pieces of this story.”
