When you try your best – Via Pontano, Milano 1997
There are many reasons why I love this piece: it has been painted at the glorious Pontano hall of fame during an era when painting there it still meant something. Just very few people were authorized by oldschool kings Sten and Mec (TDK crew, owners of the wall): it was a great honor, an opportunity that could not be wasted.
Second, I was with my close friend MastroK who rocked a super nasty character between me and Shot CKC (on the left, sorry I dont have the photo). Third, so cool to paint once again with Shot CKC, another Milano’s legend: we have gone painting trains many times together but this has been the first and the last time we painted a wall, both guests at someone else hall of fame. Last but not least, I tryed to do my best: the piece turned out big, not perfect but… wild.
While finishing it I remember that Shad stopped by the wall and told me it was a cool piece: and Shad never loved me (but for me he’s always been a real master).
Did I mention this piece survived there for 15 years?
