Episode #36 - Toronto Graffiti Artist: Kizmet
It is regarded as both a crime and art: Graffiti. Exploring the issue, Paul and Jordan talk with Toronto-based artist, Kizmet, about his reasons for doing graffiti himself--from signing or "tagging" his name to creating elaborate murals, in various (and sometimes legally questionable) places--and how graffiti actually beautifies, rather than takes away from, the life of a city. The three discuss how graffiti has been embraced by mainstream culture, including corporations wanting to appear "hip," and the challenge this poses to the graffiti artist to not give in to lucrative offers, at the expense of artistic integrity.
