Curve

A discussion of style and history with the versatile and sure-handed Curve TGE NSF.

How did you come up with your name?
Curve:
I just remember struggling for months to come up with a name nobody else had. I tried so many different names like made-up words, noises, two-letter names for throw-ups and then I noticed some people wrote actual English words, like “Shame” and “Revolt.” I thought that was classy and I wanted a five-letter name like that. I don’t know how I chose Curve, but I think the word comes up a lot when talking about letters, art, etc.

What crews do you push?
Curve:
The Graffiti Experience and Non Stop Fun.

Who were you influenced by?
Curve: Some of the first graffiti I remember was on handball courts. One was in the projects I would see from the school bus window that said “King Pepper” and another at my own school with a piece that I could never read but next to it were three pool balls that said “K,” “G,” and “B” along with a character with Elvis hair and a quote that read “Cuz everybody knows me.”
