Over the weekend, Matt and I headed to the Carriageworks to check out Platform 5, an annual hip hop festival in Sydney. Dear friends of ours were hosting Can Control, a graffiti competition in which a few of our other friends were participating. The event felt like a family reunion of sorts for the local graff community. By midday the warehouse was full of familiar faces, warm hugs, and killer talent. People of all ages, ethnicities, and styles rocked up to observe first-hand the art of graffiti by some of the country’s best writers.
