- I hate graffiti on the Internet. I really hate it. You can't change anything because it happened. If I go back to the invention of the Internet, the good thing about the Internet is that it helps to make contacts and stay in touch with friends in other countries. As for the other stuff, it makes everything else GMO-nic. Everything becomes the same…It's like you travel to one city, and McDonald's and KFC in every city has the same, the same message. It lost its mystic, its incredibility. If you don't even try to give anything extra, you just take from the culture where you're born. You don't put anything from yourself into it, you just pick a little from Instagram or Facebook or Flickr… why? What's the point of it? In the 80's, in the early 90's you could tell which city the writer is from just by looking at the style of graffiti. Now it's like all the same… not all the same but a lot the same.
- If the internet affects this culture, I think, it's the same as it has affected the most cultures. What is down by making it exclusive to the masses, so it loses its mistake, it loses its aura, it loses its pale, it loses its rawness, it loses its sleekness, in fact, every thing about it can be found out. Of course, new things get dismayed. What makes the graffiti special has being sold, pinned on the internet. It's not the Internet's problem, but the internet produces culture where people take everything and just do that I won't do. Many of these different things came from London street cultures. It doesn't exist any more in my eyes. Hip-hop came from New York. Graffiti has a large connection to that culture. Many people in England discovered graffiti from the hip-hop culture.
The Internet was supposed to make everything better, but that is not so. It cheapened the legacy, the history of the things that came before. I hate all these aspects but I understand that the Internet is technology. I hope that my friends don't think that I wish the Internet wasn't invented. That also goes for a mobile phone - the other form of communication. You know, graffiti writing is pre-mobile phone. Mobile phone came approximately in 1991-92 to England. You know, mobile phone, smartphone culture, Internet culture, all this makes secret cultures, secret societies accessible. This spoils and ruins a part of them. It's great if you are outside but if you sometimes come inside. But, if you are already a part of it, it cheapens it and makes it less special.
