PUSHA! is an informal long distance skateboarding race which is held on a 20km distance (half marathon).

There are few races of this kind in the world (although during the last years they have grow up everywhere, especially in the US), and the fact that Milano has held for the second time such a competition is quite an extraordinary event, considered the modest space where skateboarding is always relegated in the city.

      Opium - Milano 1997
      While searching for the right flow, you may generate an accidental little gem. I never tried to develop this style anymore after this time, but I still love this piece, it’s just missing a nice simple background.
      …that old original Montana white was crazy good, covering everything like toothpaste!

        Good sketching it’s not that easy

        If you’re sketching to prepare a street production, you’re free to use every kind of trick. Few black & white lines can be enough: the rest of the idea is drawn in your mind ready to be used when needed. But if you’re sketching as a form of training or fixing your style, the paper becomes your street and the game is much more difficult. How many years will your sketch survive before you will judge it outdated?

          Wild Style means Wild

          Metroner MastroK - Via Brunelleschi, Milano 1996

          When it comes to graffiti it is often mistakenly believe that the term Wild Style indicates an illegible tangle of letters full of lines and arrows, as if you had taken your name and you had woven a crown of thorns. The truth is that Wild Style simply means wild, something that is not within the already known stylistic canons. So even the simplest things can be Wild, the only discriminating factor is the creativity and the ability to innovate. But you know, simpliest things are always the more difficult to achieve.

            Air - Milano 1990

            My dear friend KayOne just discovered this old illegal street piece dated 1990: wow! Believe me, I really dont remember anything about this piece, how or where it has been painted, I just can say that judging from my tag (up left) it was early 1990 as during 1989 (the year I started painting), I was still tagging “Nho” and that style of “Air” tag comes from the early months of 1990, after Kay gave me some styles to work on to evolve the new name.
            There’s always a starting point!
