Major shout out to artist SERY for coming through all the way from La Rochelle, France. SERY is a very humble and cool dude and it was a pleasure to have him come through to bless the Yard Work Wall. Peace and Respect. -SERRINGE

Shout out to the killas Demer and Snow for reaching out on this one. Garden Sk8 has to be one of the illest places I've been to. I've had the privilege to see some amazing talents rock at the spot and its always good energy. Unfortunately, hurricane Irene came through and damn near destroyed the place. Most people would have called it quits, but Todd "The Bossman Schwartz didn't. He reached out to people like Snow and Demer to give this place a makeover. The outcome is Garden Sk8 2.0 and I must say it is back to where it was. Fresh paint and ramps all over the place... a skateboarders dream.
Shout outs to SNOW, DEMER, TODD SCHWARTZ, THEN ONE, EZOR, SERY, JOE IURATO and BT CREW for letting me capture some footage. Oh and peace to fellow video mastermind GENTRIFRIED. Peace and Respect -SERRINGE

The nature of art has always been discussed and debated. Most people agree that there is not just one definition, but rather, art encompasses a variety of ideas, approaches and qualities. What about graffiti? Although many may consider this vandalism and destructive with no intrinsic value - it is emotional, it does communicate and many believe it really is legitimate art. Paterson native Carmelo Sigona has been painting graffiti for more than 30 years. His tag name, "Snow", dates back to the late 70s when he was called Snow White because he was the only white kid in the neighborhood painting on the streets. Sigona has transitioned into a successful commercial career which includes licensing deals, album covers and music videos. He's currently pitching a graphic novel to several studios in Hollywood with the hope of turning it into a film or cartoon series. (Video by Andre Malok / The Star-Ledger)

Shout out to T.Dee for reaching out to me on this project. It was a good couple of days out on Central Avenue in Jersey City and I must say watching peoples reactions to the piece proved that it was definitely bringing good vibes to the neighborhood. Anyway the homie T.Dee did his thing as usual and the end result looked amazing. Peace and Respect -SERRINGE

Major Shout out to artist ZAR for coming through and blessing "IMMORTALIZED" with his history and skill. ZAR is a very down to earth type of guy with stories about his history that I would've listened to forever. Its really a treat when someone like this lets you into their world for a moment, especially when you don't know if this is the last time you'll hear his side of history. I'm grateful for your time big homie.
As far as "IMMORTALIZED" goes... Its been quite the journey. When we started the documentary we didnt know how important it would be to make sure that every aspect of the film would have to be catored to. In the end we figured out the tweaks we had to make and even though its taken a lot longer I dont regret it one bit. The finished product will be something I will be proud to present to anyone. That being said please be patient and Ill keep you posted on here as usual.
Peace and Respect to the homie ZAR. -SERRINGE

Major shout out to the homie SNOW! This guy is not just an artist but a true visionary and root within the culture of hip-hop. It is rare and far in between that we see people like SNOW getting bigged up by major television. Moments like these make me proud... I couldn't think of many that deserve it more than SNOW. So here's to SNOW and all his major accomplishments. Much respect... cheers!
