Despite the Covid induced restrictions of not being a public event, Off The Wall’s milestone 10th anniversary marked a memorable day for the Northwest graffiti art community. 12 crews of four convened bright and early Saturday, August 29th and endured a 12 hour marathon of creativity in action.
From these, a panel of esteemed judges including the newly formed 206 Zulu Urban Arts Committee, along with notable old-schoolers Bruno and Clowns, evaluated each crew in categories that include: originality, theme, color and composition, can control and unity.
After grueling consideration, the determinations announced RNU taking third place and the $100 prize, SPK coming second in the running with a $400 prize, and GAK who took the championship title along with the unprecedented $1,000 prize!
