Graffiti writing has always been a criminal activity, looked upon as vandalism. When the Under Pressure Festival was founded in 1996, many people also associated it with gang activity; the desire to alter this misconception is part of what inspired Under Pressure’s creation. As a small, community-funded festival organized by volunteers, Under Pressure’s goal is to emphasize not only the artists, but also to foster a sense of community. More info and video after the jump!

James Bulloughis an American born artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. His paintings, and huge monumentally scaled site-specific murals, are phenomenal combinations of realist painting technique and graphic punctuation. Inspired by gritty urban graffiti as a young artist growing up in Washington, DC, Bullough harnessed its energy in his work, and perfected a realistic oil painting technique from his study of the Old Masters.
