The Studio@620 and Florida CraftArt present a screening of STYLE WARS as part of the St. Petersburg Mural Festival. There will be a post-screening discussion with mural artists to give direct insight into the process.
STYLE WARS - the indispensable document of New York Street graffiti and hip hop culture of the early ’80s. This is the essential filmic record of a golden age of youthful creativity that exploded into the world from a city in crisis, capturing the look and feel of New York’s ramshackle subway system as graffiti writers’ public playground, battleground and spectacular artistic canvas. STYLE WARS shows the innocence of these young artistic innovators, now considered forefathers of a movement bigger than they could have ever imagined, and has become an emblem of the original, embracing spirit of hip hop as it reached out across the world from underground tunnels, uptown streets, clubs and playgrounds.
