Basik was 12 when Graffiti began to first make an impression on him. Very soon it became one of the most important aspect of his life. Being a writer had been a way of life for him for more than 10 years, by the mid-nineties when he had been named as one of the three most influential graffiti writers in Italy. The passion for writing has lead him to spend endless hours sketching and passing many cold nights outside. The medium has driven his mission and certainly has had a big influence on the way he visualizes street art.
Graffuturism has chosen 886 Geary to hold its anniversary show bringing together an impressive group of International artists to exhibit.
