I was allowed into the gritty underground of graffiti in Cincinnati, Ohio. Following the doings of REIGN, BENZ, KELSOE, APOK, RAPID, AKTOE, KROWN, ROME, REKOBI, and EZON, I got to witness first hand the adrenaline of illegal street art being done at three o'clock in the morning. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, these artists, who are part of larger graffiti crews known both locally, and nationwide, revealed by-laws of the art and their personal ways of handling situations that arise. This short documentary serves as a small glimpse into the pride and ego of graffiti, as well as helps give an understanding as to why these people risk felony convictions, thousand dollar fines, and jail time just to get their name up.
You Vandal will be released in Summer 2013.
