Reso 1

  Graffiti or "graffito", which involves scratching through one layer of pigment to reveal another beneath it. This technique was primarily used by potters who would glaze their wares and then scratch a design into it. In ancient times graffiti was carved on walls with a sharp object, although sometimes chalk or coal were used. The word originates from Greek — graphein — meaning "to write."
     Urban art  has evolved over the years and it has seperated itself from vandalism by creating works for galleries and shows.
   That leads me to a German artist who calls himself Reso1. When I first saw pictures of his Abstract contour lines, I was in awe of the steady sharp form-lines and natural curvature of his "tag". "He mixes graffiti techniques and art concepts. He combines rough urban art aesthetics with clean precise lines and elegant letters."
  Really great design on all of his work. He helped organize and is running a 7 month long outdoor-exhibit in Germany called "Art-Graffiti-21" Twenty One, street artists have visually re-transformed an old rusty Iron mill and turned it into a massive Art Walk. Reso1 will soon be releasing ltd. edition prints of some of his future work sometime near the end of summer or early in the fall. I can't wait! Here is a video while he's at work:
