Kid Zoom Painting Process

This cat knocks out layers and layers of aerosol expression. Watch the process.

“Here’s a look at the process Kid Zoom, the Australian born, New York based artist, and his slightly insane cat go through with a painting, start to finish.” - Kingbrown Magazine

Writer Highlight- Smash 137

Smash 137 is one of my favorite, prolific graf writers. His letter styles and color combos are so versatile and numerous yet he still completely hones his own style. Props to a true style master.

Who is the Patron Saint of Spray Paint?

Saint Seymour of Aerosol

I have often wondered, who was the first human to think drinking milk was a good idea? Why would someone see white fluid oozing out of an animal and even have the thought that it’d be a good thing to drink? Along the same lines who was the first to have the idea to roast animal flesh over a fire? I understand getting hungry and thinking animals might be good to eat but who took it to that next level and what made them think it was even a good idea to try? It’s genius and in hindsight seems so second nature and not at all some ridiculous crazy idea. (Vegans don’t start, it’s a separate issue)

This got me to thinking of other genius ideas that now seem so obvious. Spray paint. It’s so greatly taken for granted but who took that evolutionary step to dream of the combination of paint and aerosol? Enter Edward Seymour in 1949. Although supposedly it was his wife’s idea (ladies, holla) and he put it into action. And the first color, aluminum. So we definitely have them to thank for those classic silver fills.
