One of my favorite events throughout the year is always the Jersey Fresh Jam. So much talent in one place is inspiring. Once again, big shout out to all my old friends and new ones. Here is my piece from the event…check it out!
Glad for a chance to get back to the Jersey Fresh Jam this year. I ‘ve always loved rocking at this event, catching up with old friends and making new ones. Rain storms were looming most of the day, so I tried to bang out my piece before it got too bad out there. Big ups to all the writers and performers at the event, everyone who came through and hung out. As always, I gotta send a big shoutout to Rain and Demer for the hook up and all their work putting this thing together. Good times!
The Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop festival. Since 2005, it has grown from a small, humble event into one the most respected celebrations of Hip Hop culture on the east coast. At the twilight of every summer, aerosol artists from far and wide converge to adorn the walls of Terracycle INC with their signature masterpieces, while local and regionally known emcees, bands, and DJs provide the soundtrack for the days festivities.This event is free and open to the public. Come and share the excitement!

What is an Aerosol Art Battle?
A theme is given the day of the event. Then artists are given an equal amount of time to complete their art on space provided. Example, canvas, Crescent Graffiti Paper, wood. They will all be using Montana spray paint and paint markers. A qualified panel of judges base the art on different criteria, lettering, concept, color, composition, originality and technique.
THE BLACK BOOK BATTLE!

Crescent will provide all on-time attendees with Black Book. Colorest will be providing some art materials, although contestants are urged to bring materials such as: colored pencils, markers, paint markers etc. to compete in battle. Sharing could take away valuable time! Registration is limited!
Art Materials Valued at $100 and Gift Card From Rare Breed Footwear!
Registrants will be given a topic to use for inspiration, they will be allowed 60 minutes to complete this piece. Then Judges will pick winner based on same criteria for Aerosol Event. If you have never competed and want some tips take our workshop from 12-2 on Saturday 11/12 with Leon Rainbow (Judge) for tips and tricks!
What is a Black Book Battle?
Similar to the aerosol event but, instead of painting on large surfaces you draw, paint and design all on paper. Black books are a place for artists to put down ideas, Crescent® Graffiti Paper™ is designed specifically for spray paints, acrylics and won’t dry out markers. Great place for artists to sketch or experiment anywhere inspiration strikes.
