The Collingwood Collection (and associated suburbs) part 1 of 3

Aerosol graffiti comes in three basic forms, tags, throw-ups and pieces. Out of the three forms pieces dominate the media. Not enough attention is given to throw-ups and their role in society. Throw-ups are often associated with bombing (the act of putting up work on many surfaces quickly). Throw-ups tend to be concentrated- 
  • around areas that are buffed regularly
  • high profile sites, trackside walls, roadside walls
  • places where tags have accumulated often becoming layered and indecipherable   
  • where there is not enough time to paint a piece
