Shelflife 'Crime in the City' Pack

Shelflife 'Crime in the City' Pack
Shelflife are proud to announce the release of our 'Crime in the City' pack. Drawing inspiration from the iconic 1980s graffiti documentary Style Wars, Shelflife created a full graphic pack with a Shelflife twist.



In Style Wars, graffiti artist Skeme talks about his 'All You See is Crime in the City’ piece on the New York City subway. With the train mural he makes the comparison between the vast amount of crime in the city, and graffiti on subway trains. Skeme's piece implies that there's much more to graffiti than meets the eye. It's not a serious crime. The clip was later popularised and even used as an intro for New York rapper Mos Def’s Respiration track. 



Depending on who you ask, graffiti is either a form of art or a form of crime. And the energy from this contrast is what graffiti and its writers thrive upon. Shelflife began as a graffiti supply shop and has grown to become so much more, but we never stopped supporting the graffiti and art scene. 



Comprised of 7 key pieces, the Shelflife 'Crime in the City' pack will be releasing exclusively at Shelflife Cape Town, Johannesburg and our online store on the 27th of October 2018 at 10am. First come first serve.Shelflife 'Crime in the City' Shortsleeve Tee - Mustard
