Although he’s not that well-known in Europe, Larry Lovebone is a king in American graffiti history – he was the first tagger, writing his name illegally using spray-cans!
The short documentary series 1st To Do It, which chronicles some of the most innovative, daring and unknown maverick’s in the fields of art, music, sports and fashion, now featured him and his story, including comments by some of the most influential US-American writers…
It’s often disputed in the world of graffiti just who was the first writer to put their moniker up illegally. The vanguard of American graffiti artists, including REVOK, RIME and SABER contribute to the legend of Larry Lovebone, who many art historians have disregarded and omitted from the chronicles of style-writing due to his other cultural contributions during the sexual revolution in the 1960s. In his own words, Mr. Lovebone tells the tale of his infamous tag and its origins in his ability to bed copious amounts of women from every race, culture, creed and religion.
