Graffiti, as in hip-hop rather than 70s punk and anarchy, got started in Canberra in the 80s. Here, writers talk about how they came to pick up their first spray can, from the 80s through to the 00s. Not all influential writers from this time are represented here, and each has their own experience and unique story. Together, these stories build a picture of Canberra’s growth as a graff city.
