New York City, Bushwick in particular, is over-saturated with graffiti. Lost in the shuffle of tags and throws are many beautiful pieces that are easy to overlook. Nowadays, almost everyone and anyone claims to be a writer. Few from amongst the many concern themselves with the technicalities of lettering. Yet, there remains a remnant of writers who devote time, energy and understanding letters. A member of both the Crime Style Family (CSF) and 2 The Extreme (2DX), Minus (@theminuske) is among that group.
Take a Look at His Work
In Bushwick and throughout the tri-state area, Minus leaves a trail of solid lettering with clean color schemes wherever he paints. Minus is certainly not the only writer who is worth mentioning from this grouping; however, he is the only one--to my knowledge--who uses an anime bend to his work in the New York area. Alongside his detailed letters are often characters from lesser known characters with compelling story lines like One Punch Man. True to form, often times, said characters are interacting with, or make up part of his namesake.
