Jersey Fresh Jam
August 11, 2012, Trenton NJ
The 7th annual Jersey Fresh Jam, put on by VS (Vicious Styles Crew), was this past Saturday in Trenton NJ. Jersey Fresh is a free all day event that brings the community together to witness talented artists painting and flexin their aerosol skills. More than 50 invited graffiti artists from all over took to their cans and beautified the walls of Terracycle INC on the warm summer afternoon.
My goddaughter, Jadzia, came with me this year being that she's also an artist and knowing it would be a good experience for her. She sat, watched and waited for Shiro as she painted and finally had a chance to ask her to hit her book. This was her highlight of the day
(I don't blame her)!
Despite the music being shut down by the authorities, MC's still formed a cypha in the back area to release their lyricism for us. With vendors lining the sidewalk, I definitely had to stop at FlyKicks
tent which was filled with Dez's talent with her custom kicks, jewelry and canvas designs. Colorest Art Store was on hand with their unlimited amount of supplies. There was facepainting, bodypainting and fun with hula hoops for all ages too.
It's dope to see how the event is getting larger as each year comes around.
