Style Wars and marker workshop
Style Wars chronicles an extraordinary epoch of youthful creativity and civic controversy. Teenage graffiti artists made New York City’s ramshackle subway system their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas. Opposing them were Mayor Edward Koch, the police, and the Transit Authority. As MC’s and DJs rocked the city with new sounds, street corner B-boy breakdance battles became performance art. Style Wars is, regarded by many as the definitive document of the emerging hip hop culture, an emblem of the original, embracing spirit that burst forth to the world from underground tunnels, uptown streets, clubs and playgrounds.
Along with the film, there will be a workshop for all you aspiring artists out there on how to make your own markers using household items... so your art can look like the pros. DIY skills rule!
