HOW TO GRAFFITI HATS #10 (Underground Kulture Blank Fitteds & Snapbacks)

Underground Kulture Fitted & Snapback Hats

How To Graffiti Hats #10 – When we draw a fresh batch of limited edition fitted or snapback hats, the 1st thing we do is get in touch with our friends at Underground Kulture and get stocked out. The hats in the pictures are strictly  limited edition (of 1) hats that we have drawn for Underground Kulture. They are a UK based company who manufacture their own brand of fitted and snapback hats. We get loads of e-mails and youtube messages asking us what hats we use and we don’t have the time to reply to everyone, so if you’re looking for New Era style blank hats at a much better price, now you know where to go.

Here’s a quick quote from their website – ‘Underground Kulture pride ourselves on having the freshest designs with our own unique spin on things. Formed in 2008, with the aim of bringing Underground Kulture to be a recognised and reputable brand. Our creative team set about designing a range of head wear inspired by what we know and love, taking inspiration from the underground Hip-Hop scene, the graffiti world & other urban aspects. This now “classic” range proved to be very successful, firmly putting Underground Kulture on the map.’…

HOW TO GRAFFITI #11 (Henry Chalfant Subway Art Re-Issue Interview)

How To Graffiti Lesson #11 – We’ve written another post on here about Martha Cooper in the photography section. She wrote and photographed a book called ‘Subway Art’ with Henry Chalfant. This book became the graffiti bible for anyone (like us) born in the 70s and early 80s who wanted to know more about graffiti and hip hop culture. This book was re-issued to celebrate it’s 25 Anniversary in a larger format with some nice extras in there as well. Henry will go down in history as one of the most important figures in hip hop culture. Have a look for other books by Henry, like Spraycan Art, and also some of his limited edition screen prints as well. Hint – The book will go down in history as the most stolen book in 1984, but don’t steal your copy, go out and buy one, support real hip hop culture.…
