These two guys showed up to my art opening in Milwaukee back in 2006 and told me they were from NYC and that their neighbor, John Grigley, had told them that they should check out my show while they were in town. This in itself was weird to me, since John Grigley is an old pro skater guy who I’ve never met but am familiar with…regardless, a minute later I find out that these dudes are SMITH and ERNI. My mind was COMPLETELY blown - especially since Erni’s piece from the cover of Subway Art has always been my absolute favorite piece in that book. I felt like I’d finally met my long lost graffiti dad.
