NEKST Tribute from Alynn, Mags and Jurne

This week was a hard one.  The graffiti community lost an incredible force: NEKST. We are deeply hurt by this loss.

Our love and thoughts go out to those who knew and loved him, his family, his friends, his siblings, his crew.

Alynn-Mags hit MIA Art Basel 2012

Coming down off another amazing trip to Miami Art Basel, would have to say, the first thoughts that come to mind are exhaustion, inspiration, and a thirst to do it all again!!  We, Lady Mags and Amandalynn ( Alynn-Mags ),  teamed up with Ironlak spray paint company to create a very large scale piece in Miami's Wynwood District during Art Basel Miami 2012.

Inspired by classic 1950's Miami beach postcards, the Alynn-Mags duo went to Miami to outdo themselves. Instead of adorning pieces with Characters, the two really integrated their styles. Alynn used spray paint and brush to create the 'fill' of the 'A' in the Mags piece, while Mags was busy trying to avoid getting stung by wasps nesting in the daunting shrub below, and painting a piece three times her height....

And though it was a lot of work, there was definitely time to play and visit with friends, fellow writers, muralists, and artists alike.
