Element Tree Presents ZESO

Major shout out to the amazing talent that is ZESO.  I've been shooting artist for 5 years now and ZESO has to be on the list of artists that have completely blown me away with skills. He's produced some really awesome large scale murals in New York that you have to hunt down and check out... seriously. Anyway, we had a blast collaborating  at the Bridge Skate Park in Bayonne, NJ... Shout out to the homie Ant! Peace and Respect. -Serringe

Element Tree Presents: ROCKIN IT SUCKAS 2015 (Bridgeport, CT)

A few months ago I was lucky enough to document this awesome event in R.I.S. Crew history out in Bridgeport, CT. I found myself pulling up to a Wendy's parking lot confused on where exactly these guys were going to be painting. Eventually I made a phone call and got brought to an empty hidden parking lot which revealed the massive wall that writers Mone, Giz, Detox, Kite, Miro, Ket and Cro seemed eager to get there hands on. Watching these guys rock some black books and pieces was something else. I played the cut quietly just listening to awesome stories of the golden years while watching some vets of the game producing pieces that can keep up with the modern graffiti world via some classic and timeless styles. Ket had even mentioned to me that him and Miro hadn't painted together since 1988 so I was happy to have documented that history. The results speak for themselves. Enjoy. -Serringe

Video: Portrait of a Brooklyn Hustler: Jazzsoon

I stumbled upon this awesome video featuring the one and only Jazzsoon. I've personally met this multi talented, energetic and just overall one of a kind character that is Jazzsoon and this video represents him well. Check him out and definitely check out those beats.... dudes a killa. -Serringe

Info: The portrait of Jazzsoon: Collector. Hustler. Brooklyn Native. Living for the weekends. ‘Jazzsoon’ is a short about a Brooklyn hustler who lives for the wknds. Artist and filmmaker Ivan Cash met with a Brooklyn resident named Jazzsoon and found him to be a character so fascinating the made him the subject of his own documentary short,“Jazzsoon: Portrait of a Brooklyn Hustler.” Jazzsoon is a Park Slope “hustler” who proselytizes his notion of “living life on the weekends.” You gotta live your life on the weekends, you know what I’m sayin’? Fuckin’ steak and shrimp on the weekends, you know what I’m sayin’?
