(August 29, 2011) Graff artists were back to work on their pieces at the Graffiti Hall of Fame 2011. The severe weather during the later part of the weekend may have reaped havoc on this year’s planned events, but Irene did not deter writers from making good on their homage to the late “King of Styles,” KASE2 aka CASE2. Many of the smaller pieces blowing up the side-walls have been finished. For more info contact JAMES TOP via email: email@example.com
