New York - Meeting the Mural Kings of the Bronx

It all started after the Graffiti Tour in Harlem with James Top.  James Top is a self taught graffiti artist and was one of the founding members of the Odd Partners. TOP made history by dominating the IND & BMT subway lines during the mid to late 1970's. He took us around Harlem and mid town and showed us some amazing graffiti art.  He then introduced me to a local graffiti artist named Scratch.  Scratch wanted to show me the origins of graffiti art in New York so she took me to the Bronx and set up a meeting with the Tats Cru.  

BG183 took me around the office, gave me a brief history of the bronx community centre and shared some painting tips. I also met prettytone163, Nicer and Bio, they were all such amazing talented guys. 

If you're ever in New York, you have to purchase the "If these walls could talk" experience from Airbnb with James Top. It's worth it and really fun.
