While living in Brussels, Belgium, artist Jonathan Koshi spent 3 months photographing doors covered in tags. He used the photos to produce a gorgeous series of graphite drawings. See more below.

    These are great. The graphite kind of obscures what’s “original” and what’s tagged – like in the first one I’m guessing that little train tunnel in the bottom right is tagged but I guess it could be a funny little piece of decor. In the “Don Bosco” it looks like there’s a hamburger or something on the ground (bottom right again) but I don’t trust my eyes – maybe it’s a tag, maybe it’s a joke by the Koshi. Fun stuff.

    these are awesome!

  • I always thought that doors made great frames for the tags that adorn them

    I’ve been photographing tags on doors for almost 15 years. What a great project you have here drawing them.

  • Lovely work and they’re so tiny!

R.I.P. Prodigy

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
