Graffiti writer, artist, and friend AVONE has recently been incarcerated on charges of vandalism. If we can gather $2,000 bail ASAP then we can keep him from having to spend the next 3 weeks on Rikers Island. If found guilty he faces a sentence of at least 9 months.
If you live in New York City and keep your eyes open when you walk around then you have seen AV’s work. I have been shooting photographs of his tags for 3 years and was lucky enough to collaborate with him on Graffiti Analysis and the Drip Sessions (video, video, photos).
If you have enjoyed any of these projects and are able to make a donation towards his bail and legal fees please do so by clicking the button below. People willing to make donations of $150 or more can choose from any of the remaining ink on paper tags used in the creation of the Drip Sessions.

If you live in NYC and would like to make a donation in person and get a tour of the Graffiti Research Lab please contact us at freeavone(at)ni9e.com
