Ian's Wall

luv1 in flemington. bringin' it to the burbs. probably the least menacing graff wall in new jersey and yet still got rolled up on a couple of times. to be expected, this is the first legit aerosol wall in the area. apparently there's a anti-graffiti ordinance, so i says to the po po, graffiti is by definition illegal, i have permission, that makes this aerosol art. we'll see if i gotta paint over it. so many people was givin luv tho, young to old, dentists, insurance agents, waiters, lawyers, bug guys, question of the day was.."why are you doing this?" stock answer estimated at..."i wanna bring color into the world bring public art to the people of my community." "r u getting paid? what do you get out of it" "i get to take my flick, i get to say that's me, i was here, what do think? and begin a dialog across generations and backgrounds about art in public spaces." will update the story if anything changes. i'm pretty happy i finally grew a pair about going around asking for walls, which i've been thinking about forever, mostly depending on other's spots, and landed one on my first day, third try. my hope is it will only build from here.
