Letters From The West Coast

Graffiti has always produced the best and most original lettering and no one blurs the line between typography and art more than L.A. based artist Atlas. In this short, beautifully made film, the artist shows the progression of graffiti in the last decade and the ongoing debate over graffiti's proper place in today's society. The film delves far deeper than the art vs. vandalism debate and provides an inside look into an artist's motivation and his passion for an art form that remains largely underground.
