Zone WST has been painting for a while now, I’m sure you’ve seen his graffiti in a magazine or on the internet by now, he’s just known. When I had a chance to meet Zone in Las Vegas and ask him if he would be down to do an interview for Neighborhood Love, he was really cool, and just mellow and easy to deal with. That was nice in a sport where there is always a lot of ego flying around. I personally think Zone has mixed an old classic graffiti look, with a modern wildstyle with his hooks, bars, arrows and extensions. His graft it a blend of both, looking super clean, sharp and colors looking crisp at all times. I chose the first pic, because it too looks classic to me, a tribute to where it all started, you’re first spot you pieced in some abandon house, or dingy back alley or remote train or metro track somewhere. I’m feeling this first pic and hope you are too. Now read as we chop it up with Zone WST!
I was very honored to have been able to have opportunity to help out a couple of good friends and crew mates execute their idea for a Tony Gwynn Mural Tribute. Tony Gwynn is a baseball legend and San Diego icon who was respected as much off as he was on the field for his craftsmanship, character, and loyalty to the City of San Diego. This project was spearheaded by Zone, who came up with the idea and Mr. Padre sketch, and Sake, who created the amazing Tony Gwynn portrait in addition to a lot of organizational, logistics, and media promotional work. I played a supporting role in helping to obtain some support for supplies from Ironak, WST, and Writerz Blok in addition to numerous digital mock ups, and numerous late nights of grunt work painting. Credit goes to Unique ASK XMEN for helping out with painting and to DazeRoc for also assisting with painting and video documentation of the project.
The entire process was an awesome experience of which to be a part. The scale of this mural made the project somewhat challenging but I’m very proud of how the team came together to make this vision a reality for the City of San Diego. Thank you to Rocco at Undisputed Gym for allowing us to use his building as canvas. And last but not least, we appreciate all of the support, financial and otherwise, and the tremendous feedback we’ve received in the process of creating this tribute!
Here are some photos from last weekend’s Style-A-Thon 2013 at Writerz Blok. Thank you to Ironlak for flying out Jurne as our special guest and for supplying paint and some goodies for the participating artists! The DJ’s, MC’s, and B-Boys did their thing throughout the day and kept the crowd entertained while the artists worked on their pieces. Overall, it was a great event and we’re glad to be able to enjoy the day and produce new works with great friends and artists. Once again, a very special thank you goes out to Jurne and Ironlak for helping to arrange for his trip out on short notice!
