Spotlight on Adam Fujita’s “My Life in Letters”

“My Life in Letters,” a podcast documenting graffiti, street art, and hip hop culture, is a must-listen for anyone interested in the graffiti scene. Host Adam Fujita (aka ATOM), interviews a different artist each time, delving into their histories, styles, interests, and influences as writers. These podcasts bring the unique perspectives and stories of graffiti writers to the foreground, providing some casual, unpretentious yet interesting discourse. In the first of twelve available podcasts on iTunes, Fujita talks with New York artist Zimad, aka Luis Lamboy about growing up in the Big Apple in the 60’s and 70’s, his early days in graffiti, and how he chose his name. Be sure to check out My Life in Letters for free on iTunes!

Check out Fujita’s most recent work with the Bay Area’s own Joker. Here are some progress shots as well as the finished product!
