A Full Clip on the Hip

Noted NYC graffiti artist Lee Quinones has responded to readers' questions at NYTimes.com. His work is in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum, he appears in Wild Style, and he painted Luis Guzman's truck in How to Make it in America. Even if you don't like graffiti, his responses are worth reading just for their musicality. --ADM

Update: Part 2 and Part 3 are posted. His use of the language is just as joyous. And, per request, here's some of his subway work. And the story of his crew, the Fabulous 5ive.

"As its been suggested to me: Learn how to suffer with your own identity."

"Now I may rejoice about that time with my peers over a drink just to toot the nostalgic horns... With due respect, some may miss the pivotal moments of their youth, but the past should not create a naval blockade that undermines the possibilities of the future." Great stuff.
