“Cukui Presents: Ken Davis. There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.” Visit the CUKUI flagship in San Jose’s Japantown to get your hands on one now.

ACCLAIM just released their 31st issue with a special feature interview with BTM’s KATSU.
“A few years ago I was sitting with a girl in a grimy bar in my hometown of Melbourne, Australia. She was looking at a framed photo that was hanging on the wall, a black and white image of a city street, wondering where it was taken. To me, it was obvious – it was clearly New York City. There weren’t any yellow cabs, or the familiar façades of Fifth Avenue, but there was a massive KATSU extinguisher tag in the frame. “I’m pretty conscious of what I’m doing and I think a lot about it,” explains Katsu over an anonymous phone connection that’s been re-routed via a third party. “As much as I’m a fan-child of graffiti subculture, I’m always trying to understand what’s really going on.” – Click HERE for the full read.
