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!
