Following up on the success of the Multi-Award Winning Graffiti Verite Documentary Video Series, Filmmaker Bob Bryan has
completed GV4, the ultimate Primer / Tutorial and Step-by- Step Program on Spray Can Art.
Most popular amongst Educators, the series has given outsiders a rare glimpse into the outstanding Art and eclectic
personalities behind the controversial Graffiti Art Movement.
In GV4, Cleveland, Ohio Artist SANO (two-time winner of The International Graffiti Art Competition) pulls you into the
Underground Art form by showing the concepts, aesthetics, techniques, and style needed to complete a perfect semi Wild
Style masterpiece (on a Legal Wall) as well as Aerosol Art on Canvas.
GV4 is a must-have-Video for Art Instructors, Art Students, Galleries, Museums, Libraries and Educational Institutions
who've been bewildered at Spray Can Technique. As a unique lesson plan, no other program exists in the marketplace of
ideas, that can compare to the inspiration, skill and intelligence of GV4.
Graffiti Art, is Art first!Graffiti in itself is a label applied to the Aerosol Art Culture, and usually carries the
negative connotation that Graffiti Art is not a viable Art Form.
However, to define Graffiti or Aerosol Art as scribbling or scrawling on a wall, or for an artist to let his tool
dictates his or her style of work, is detrimental to the idea of being an artist in this Art Form. I'm an artist, that's
all! My medium of choice for the past fifteen years has been spray paint, though I can rock with markers, watercolors,
pen, pencil, acrylics, airbrush, or on a computer, whatever. --SANO, Graffiti Artist / Instructor GV4
Graffiti found typically, but not exclusively on the walls of our urban cities, clearly unveils the angst driven drama
that exists within the psyche of the Graffiti Writer, as well as, in our conflicted egocentric society. Graffiti dares
to show us what we've become !! For many people this is a very difficult reality to come to grips with, especially if
you're in denial of any complicity!
Graffiti Art mirrors the best and worst elements of our society, period. Folks are ignorant about Graffiti Arts history
and power. Graffiti Art is a direct expression of societies' psychological state of mind , it's an 'in-your-face' sign
of our times and deserves our understanding and respect! - BOB BRYAN, Executive Producer / Director GV4
Graffiti Verite' 4 has a bold and beautiful life-affirming voice! SANO sheds a positive light on the stereotypical
misunderstandings and mystique behind the discipline and creative process involved in Aerosol Art. GV4 takes you inside
the mind of SANO as he conceptualizes and creates his work, while simutaneously declaring his love for the medium, the
madness, and the Art form.
SANO has a quiet energy that can deceive the casual or uninformed observer. SANO's quietness quickly dissolves into a
fierce focused and frenetic energy once he is resolved to the issues inherent to his current art project. This
transformation from contemplative graphic designer, to explosive aerosol warrior is mesmerizing, as he aggressively
grabs his spraycan, ready to do battle with the wall.
SANO exorcises his demons and repression's on the wall like noone I've seen before. The love he has for his art is
obvious in his body language, and funny verbal quips about his many observations. Graffiti Art has provided him with an
powerful outlet to express his secret obsessions and raison d'tre.
One of the many personal issues that drives SANO, is his mixed East / West dialectical Genetic heritage. Born from a
Japanese Mother and African-American Father, there is an internal war constantly surging throughout his body.
Alternating currents of passive / aggression pulsation's run havoc throug
