GraPESTE

uso na rin pala sa atin ang grafitti writings on the wall, hehe! kakatuwa 'no? ang galing talaga natin sa panggagaya. nauso sa states yun nung 80's pa yata kung hindi ako nagkakamali tapos ngayon nasa Pinas na at proud na proud ang mga 'grapista' sa mga nagagawa nila.

eto ang tanong: ano ba ang naitutulong nung grafitti writing sa komunidad? ang sagot: WALA! sakit sa mata ng nakararami, problema ng mga me-ari ng pader (papapinturahan pa nila ulit yun sigurado) at kaligayahan para sa nagsulat nun na wala namang nakalagay kundi alyas nya. achievement daw yun. e buti sana kung ang nakasulat dun ay words of wisdom na magpapatatag ng determinasyon ng makakabasang pinoy kaso hindi. wala kang makikita kundi makasariling pagpapahayag ng pangalan nila, astig 'di ba?! pakshet!

magkano ang ginagastos nila sa vandalism na ito? ang isang aerosol paint siguro ay nasa P200 ang pinakamura, e hindi naman sila gumagamit ng iisang kulay lang at hindi naman habam-buhay ang laman ng isang lata nun. napakamahal na kalokohan na saglit lang at kayang sirain ng kung sino mang mapadaan sa pader na yun. bakit hindi sila magpinta sa canvass, dun nila ipakita ang tunay na art at kung ga'no talaga sila kagaling. dagdagan nila ang history at wag nilang sirain sa paraang bandalismo. gumagastos sila ng napakalaking halaga na wala namang naitutulong sa iba. sinisira lang nila ang kapaligiran para lang sa pansariling kaligayan (ewan ko kung ano ang nakakapagpaligaya sa kanila dun), selfish 'di ba? ok lang sana magpakaligaya kung walang ibang naiinis sa ikinaliligaya mo.

nagtataka nga ako kung bakit pinag-aksayahan ni bernadette sembrano ng panahon sa correspondents yun e. parang tinotolerate at sinusuportahan pa nila ang mga balahurang ito na ipagpatuloy ang kalokohan nila, pathetic. mga GRAPESTE, este, grapista (kuno) pala, tigilan nyo na yan. yung ginagastos nyo d'yan ipunin nyo pambili ng load tapos humanap kayo ng textmate. i'm sure pag me syota na kayo at me katabi sa gabi hindi nyo na pag-aaksayahan ng panahon yan.. sasabihin nyo na me nakita na kayong bagong kaligayahan. hindi pa kayo magkakasakit sa baga!

sa dami ng topic kaming mga grapista pa ang napili mo, mukhang masyado kaming espesyal para sayo. Nabomba siguro ng mga bomber ang pader nyo kaya naisipan mo na baka sa pamamaraan nitong blog na ito ay makabawi ka. Hindi ka namin kailangan pakinggan dahil eto ang gusto namin gawin, kahit maglaslas ka pa sa leeg jan hindi kami hihinto para lang sayo o kung sino mang may ayaw sa ginagawa namin. Hindi lahat ng tao katulad mo na halatang ayaw sa graffiti pero hindi rin naman namin sinasabi na lahat ng tao gusto ang ginagawa namin. Kanya kanyang hilig lang yan kaya kung ako sayo huwag kang makielam sa iba kung ayaw mong mapapakielaman ka din..

hahaha, yeah we are graffiti writers and part its game are putting your art in streets.. and in illegal way. thats part of the game.. yeah cguro di mu kami maiintindihan, pero at the same time di ka din namin maintindihan.. yeah thats the real thing in art.. some appreciate it and some will hate it.. this is art of different kind of culture and we choose spray paints as a medium to express our own idea and show our talents.. at yun ang kulang mu.. you don't see things as positive but more on negative at pessimistic approach.. may kanya kanya tayong identity or pag kakaiba mahirap naman na ang lahat ng tao ay parepareho aat iisa lang ang masusnod..pangit naman yun, aat mawawalan ng kulay ang mundo.. at sa panahon na more and more young generation are getting involve in writing, they are putting the the Philippines in the Map of graffiti culture and even represents our country in other part of the world.. in that way may nagawa kami para makilala ang Pilipinas hindi sa pag gawa ng ilegal but the art it self at and pagiging pinoy grapista.

its nice thing that you are brave enough to express your thoughts about graffiti, but of course we tend to disagree with some of your statements regarding the topic.

We all cannot say that graffiti is getting into the mainstream, because it has remained in the underground since the 80's as you've stated. Although recognition is present. Now about the "grapista" here are "gaya gaya" with graffiti writers in the US, we get our influences there and from writers around the world. We have to recognize the roots of what we are dedicated to do and proud of it.

We have to respect your perception about graffiti (being a menace to society), but not all people think the same, right? We are proud of our masterpiece that we share that to the people who appreciates its beauty (well, not for you. duh!). About the words of wisdom thing, do you know what that means? Its not about the words stated, its what you to to make the society better, not to teach them hate or the term "pakshet". Your blog is sort of the same with your perception about graffiti. "Wala kang makikita kundi makasariling pagpapahayag ng pangalan nila." (Sorry, I have to quote your statement to emphasize my point.)

Now, about the aerosol can thing, before you write something about facts, you have to research first. 200PHP is way off the target. Wasting money for paint and other materials is normal when it comes to artists doing their artworks (you know that!). Art doesn't limit itself into a canvas or anything that is displayed in galleries. Thats a dumb statement you got there. You don't know anything about "true art". And furthermore, the ability of an artist, if he/she is good or not, is not equal to how realistic his/her works are, but how he/she truly express anything
and everything into his/her craft. We are all selfish (yes, including you).

About that documentary thing, if you were paying attention, they had two sides presented, the side of the graffiti writers and the side of the people that are trying to stop graffiti. And textmates?! Are you kidding me?! We are not that desperate. We have fruitful relationships with our loved ones, friends, family, etc. Are you sure the last lines are not pertaining to you and what you wish for? I think you're craving for that. Graffiti writers are not as low as you... We achieve what we want, and where will you be?

yeah, karamihan naman sa mga writers an toh ay mga nakapag aral and they are on their own careers.. they only choose this kind of culture because this is what they want.. and they know that they will be more productive and stay in positive lane.. kesa getting involve in many bad influences like drug addiction, getting in gangs that we know the no good things will brought it for you, masamanag barkada na influence na gumawa ng masama, or might kill someone as part of getting up.. here in graffiti more on expression at socialization..people are getting challenged to create a new style and make his/her own identity.. so in this case mas nagiging positive and out come at di major negative.. saka etong bombing na toh, some people don't really bomb the hard core way.. although nagawa nila yun as part of the game, di naman gaun ka dalas.. some chooses to bomb every night,other day.. some are occasional.. and some just simply quit and focus in styles.. so vandalism is part of the game since di namin nakikita nag sarili naman na doing illegal things but challenge to get up..cguro di mo kami mauunawaan or maiintindihan kung mananatilikang supernative but for those really understand us.. big cheers.. i know your enjoying your life in earth..

FLIP-1 (SBA) said...

Sup man, Flip-1 of SBA CRU writing. Kakabasa ko lang ng blog mo tungkol sa grapista. Alam ko meron tayong karapatan na i-voice out ang mga opinions natin sa particular na bagay katulad na lang ng graffiti sa Pinas.

Meron ka rin point sa sinasabi mo pero hindi lahat ng sinulat mo ay tama. At hindi rin maganda na puro negatibo ang tingin mo sa graffiti art at hindi tinitignan ang positive side nito.

Totoo na maraming klaseng graffiti ang hindi magandang tingin sa tao katulad na lang ng mga tags, throw-ups or mga marka ng mga gangs. Pero marami rin mga graffiti na ginawa na may permit at hindi lang legal kundi ma-kulay at napaka detalyado. At least yun sana ma-appreciate mo lalo na ang effort, pride at passion ng mga grapista na nag-chaga na maghanap ng pader, magsulat ng permission, gumawa ng magandang mural at ipakita sa buong mundo kung paano gumawa ng mga Pinoy ng isang magandang aerosol mural.

Pwede mong sabihin na tumigil sila pero maraming grapista dito ay hindi titigil kasi yung ang expression nila. Mahirap tigilin ang passion sa isang tao whether gumawa sila ng art or musika.

Masyadong mahal ang P200 na spraypaint. At kung meron man, yung ang Krylon na hindi ginagamit ng karamihan ng mga grapista dito. Ang average spraypaint at P90 - P160. Gumagastos ako ng P500 para sa 5 cans at yun nakakagawa nakong ng isang piece. Mas mura na yun kung ikumpara mo sa mga ginagastos mga ibang tao dyan katulad ng mga skateboarders or yung mga mahilig maglaro ng Magic cards.

At hindi rin tama sa akin na i-criticize si Bernadette Sembrano na gumawa sya ng documentary tungkol sa grapista. Maganda nga na binigay sya ang positive at negative side ng graffiti di tulad na sinulat mo sa puro negative. If I-Witness can do a documentary about a 30 years man stuck in the 1980s culture, doesn't The Correspondants have the right to make one about the graffiti art scene in Metro Manila?

Ang masasabe ko lang ay, hindi maganda kung puro negative ang tingin mo sa graffiti. Kung ganyan ang mga point of view mo sa bagay, nag hanap ka na ng kaaway lalo na sa mga taong na may passion sa ganitong art!

This ignorant bozo doesn't have an idea about art, so folks, leave this emo-loser alone. Eto lang naman alam niya gawin eh, mag-emote sa kanyang BLOGSPOT(what an achievement buddy, you've created your own blogspot! woohoo!)

And if you're saying that all grapeste are messed-up people, think again Wawel. I'm a HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER, and I'm also proud to say that I'm a member of SBA Graffiti Cru. And you? Just a nonsense emo-blogger here on the net. You sure you can make money out of it? Haha Poor boy.
