We recently watched a documentary on Netflix  ‘MAGIC TRIP’.  A rad film about something we have referenced a fair few times in our art work…the Merry Prankster’s ‘FURTHUR’ bus.  It uses a lot of the 16mm color footage shot by Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters during their 1964 cross-country bus trip  with the insane Neal Cassidy behind the wheel.

While watching we came up with a concept based on Timothy Leary’s quote ‘TURN ON, TUNE IN, DROP OUT.’ But related it to most peoples path to becoming a graffiti writer –  opening your eyes, learning the craft and dropping out of society to push the limitations and boundaries of your style.






A lot of the time when we explain to people what we do and how we work they say... "Man..you work together, and you are a couple! I'd end up killing my girlfriend/boyfriend if we collaborated on everything we did!" I guess we are pretty lucky...two peas in a pod! Two crazy, work-a-holic, mad dorks in a pod! After years of living, painting walls and working together we have only become closer, stronger and even more in sync. Every day we wake up, paint all day..and keep each other entertained with constant chatter and stupid jokes. Who could ask for more out of life!! We are both originally from Melbourne Australia, and have been living and working in LA for the past 2 years, soaking up the sun and chaos that surrounds us.
