Asheville’s “Moms” Graffiti Gang, plagued by wannabees?

So the Moms graffiti crew of Asheville North Carolina has been the main street artists since Ishmael left town years ago. Much of their work is “honored” by the graffiti world and has some sort of style or art to it. Then comes some of the other taggers that end up giving the whole graffiti world a really bad taste. Maybe you remember the old movie “Beat Street” that was taken in New York City with many real life stories. They had a graffiti artist named “Spit” and the real graffiti artists despised his vandalism. It even ended up in a couple of deaths.

So now we come back to the Moms graffiti group of Asheville. Are these the same people putting up those big black disgusting tags on I-40 and also on the old Dominoe’s Pizza on Merrimon Avenue? Sometimes crews get tag-alongs that want to do something to get their name out, or do something extremely distasteful for attention. Graffiti is somewhat accepted and will always be around in some sort, but this type of vandalism raises angry residents in Buncombe County. Moms, is this all you and what do you have to say for yourselves? I just know most serious, real graffiti groups despise work like this on Dominoe’s Pizza. Is the market that bad that the crew cannot even afford to purchase some colors and produce real “street art” anymore? What’s going on?
