a young(er) DICE – way back in FALL 2003 – makes artlovers on artnet !!
see: artnet/FALL 2003
looking to see if there were any more DICE shots on that roll – think so.
yep. tons more. and others. artnet (meaning Walter Robinson) wouldn’t publish them
at the time !!
It was a book signing for COPE 2 – “TRUE LEGEND” – and featured the debut of 3 new Molotow Premium spray paints: Night “SEEN” blue, Middle Calypso by “COPE 2” & “CES FX” Violet.
just 5 years ago, Saturday October 4th 2003 – it was back in the day in a lot of ways – but not that far back – even then, things had already turned very tightened down – the poster said in bold black letters:
“MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO PURCHASE PAINT”.
but it also was titled:
“Pearl Paint invites you to come meet some of the Molotow Premium sponsored artists’ NYC Graffiti legends: SEEN UA, COPE 2 and CES FX” – “In store will include art work, can signings, live demonstrations and a question and answer session” – which I doubt you’d see any time today.
