If you hung out in Deep Ellum in the late '90's & early 2000's you knew the ACE parking lot on Elm Street between Crowds & Good Latimer. Always looking forward to seeing the new murals weekly, I just loved that this place accepted graffiti artists and allowed them to express themselves freely. I have other images from this time, but this quote just seems to sum up the attitude of the time. Twenty years later, graffiti is part of mainstream advertising. To borrow from a saying in the tattoo industry about saying "loyal to the coil", I like to adapt a new saying for graffiti artists, "I stand with the CAN"
