Today I wish to share with you a nice video close up of the legendary graff endorser Hugo Martinez . Since 1972, this brother has been there in the dirt day one building relationships with numerous graff writers. He is the pioneer of promoting legalized graff and making it culturally acceptable through art galleries and exhibitions (The Razor Gallery). Martinez is also responsible for forming the legendary creative guild, United Graffiti Artists, with the likes of Phase2, Coco 144, Snake, Henry 161, SJK 171, Mike 171, and Stitch 1.
Since then Hugo Martinez has released an important must have book to your Hip Hop cultural library, Graffiti NYC, which details the rise of the writers before Style Wars was made. I think you should check it out right after this nice little close up of the man himself and a few nice videos of the UGA crew and its members.
