5Pointz is an outdoor art exhibit space in Long Island City, New York, considered to be the world’s premiere “graffiti Mecca,” where aerosol artists from around the globe paint colorful pieces on the walls of a 200,000-square-foot factory building.
     On May 22, The World Wide Urban Arts Festival went down produced by New York's first graf artist FLINT... and SSB founder and prez Roland DANGER 59.  It was hosted by Meresone who is in charge of the http://www.5ptz.com/ and artists came from as far as Japan, Italy, Germany and Canada. Local legends such as Bama, Ex Vandals prez WG, Ink76, Clyde, Been, Bomb1, FDT 56 and others joined the festivities.  On hand to provide musical treats were Julian Maile and Spray Paint Star, rising star Ryan Larkin  came from Nashville and Redemption Redeemed.  We were all inspired by Brenda Angel (from Oklahoma) with her beautiful 16 ft sculpture and Joel Barnaby spreading the word.  (we want to thank the Legendary Hip Hop photographer JOE CONZA for coming and these are his images.)
