Former '5 Pointz' graffiti artists continue legacy in Brooklyn
Two years after the 5 Pointz Graffiti Space in Queens was demolished, artists who became famous because of those walls are moving to Brooklyn.
5 Pointz artist Jerms and Topaz, among others, have found a home in Brooklyn. They have utilized places such as the warehouse of Standard Tinsmith and Roofing Supply Corporation in Bushwick.
The owners of the warehouse had no problems allowing graffiti on their walls, citing their ability to inspire other young artists.
Topaz, who has used graffiti for over 25 years, couldn't help but remember the beauty of their former location in Queens, but held hope that the legacy could continue in Brooklyn and throughout the city.
