American Hardcore

I started this project as a visual mixtape/homage to the bands that influenced me over the years, in style and ideology. It took shape as designs based on the songs I relate to the most.

The american punk breed (Bad Brains, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, etc.), specially that of the 80s and 90s, left a very wide and strong legacy, seen even today in a variety of cultural activities. Each city has or had its particular scene and the traffic between bands and tours ended up mixing and spreading this whole movement beyond US borders. And so across time, as some of these bands were short-lived or had an explosive creative apex, their music and ideas remaining strong today.

For me, besides listening to these songs for as long as I can remember, their ethos and ideology were equally remarkable. The fact that people were producing and promoting their art and music in such an independent way, apart from any kind of mainstream acceptance or endorsement, makes more and more sense these days and is something I constantly seek in my own work.

This was also one of those shelved personal projects until an opportunity came to bring them to life in a stencil live session. I’ll keep adding new designs and pictures from the eventual results here.
