GRAFFIGHT, which was started in Singapore, has finally landed in Brunei. Over the weekend, the first-ever, non-profit competition of its kind for graffiti writers was organised and launched by the local graffiti crew KWS.
The finals, which pit contestants Fades and Duke against each other (after they beat semi-finalists Gob01 and Sketch01), were held on Sun-day afternoon at the local skate park – Skatedium – located at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium. Fades ultimately took the championship title and Duke came in second place.
The writers were judged by local graffiti artists Tag01, Nicer and Tycal based on their flow, technique, style and colour choice. The winners will also take part in a paint demonstration for the SPfiesta 2014 to be held at the Skatedium on November 8.
According to one of the competition’s organi-sers: “Graffight was brought about to promote graffiti art… and to reduce the stigma of vanda-lism.” He also thanked their kind sponsors – Uni-ted Burnurs, FizzyFire Apparel, Kraytion Co and Sneaky B.
