Today’s guest on the show is Graffiti, Mural and Studio artist, Rubin415. I met Rubin at his studio and we talked about his roots as a graffiti writer, painting in the Bronx, paying his dues, defining his style, the difference between street art and graffiti, various spray-paint caps, getting ragged or buffed, art trends, how New York changes you much much more.

Side note, there is extensive amount of street art and graffiti lingo being tossed around in this episode. So if you find there is a word you don’t quote understand, I’ve provided a glossary in the show notes of this episode. Just visit NewYorkSaid.com and while you are these check out the pictures I posted under the Rubin415 post to check out some of his latest work.

Peace for now,

Please enjoy.

Last week I found myself exploring several districts in Paris looking for street art and good eats. As I challenge to get a different flavor of the city I decided to skip the cabs and walk or take the metro to everywhere I wanted to go. In doing that I covered a lot of ground fairly quick.

One day as I was transferring from train to train and I walked by Marvin Parks in one of the tunnels. He was holding what looked like a record cover of himself and I just walked over to ask if he was a singer and he said  yes. I asked if he’d be down to share his story for podcast and he said yes.

So that being said, Marvin and I are standing in the middle of a busy passageway in the metro or the subway during rush hour. It’s pretty noisy down there but we got it done.

In this episode we talk about why Marvin moved to Paris, the key to surviving in the city, busking in the metro, Natalie Cole, reaching people with what you have and much much more.

Please enjoy.
