    Eddy was awesome!! As a pionner in graffiti taggig, he shared with us a lot of information on street art and the social and political context it developped itself in. His words clearly came from life experience and not a "scripted tour." Thanks again Eddy, we all had an amazing time!

    Great tour of Bushwick at the old factories. For every graffiti, day etc. she knew who it was with a lot of background knowledge about the "artist" and what he wanted to say here. This is because she is in the scene and also speaks and asks with them. It was always very entertaining and informative!
