My journey began when I was assigned to write an article on graffiti in Los Angeles and found that the more artists I met and conversations we had the more I realized the story wasn't only about what they paint but why they paint. The common thread throughout every conversation seemed to be about inspiring the next generation of young artists to be dedicated to their art and to take action by speaking for their community. It was this notion that inspired me to tell their stories in hopes to spread their message and shine a new light on how graffiti can be an ally for our society.
