巴里·麦基(Barry McGee)名言

Some of my favorite pieces are from thrift shops. When I find something I really love, I live, work and sleep in it.

我最喜欢的一些东西是从旧货店买的。当我找到我真正喜欢的东西时,我就在里面生活、工作和睡觉。

I wasn't trying to turn graffiti into an art form. I just wanted to learn about art. I wanted to learn this game.

我不是想把涂鸦变成一种艺术形式。我只是想学习艺术。我想学这个游戏。

As soon as street art got popular, I was just like, 'I'm out of here.'

街头艺术一流行起来,我就想,‘我要离开这里。’

I like the idea that you can paint something outdoors, and anyone can see it. It's open to anyone, and people have to deal with it. In the gallery, it's the same 150 people on the San Francisco art scene. There's a dynamic on the street that's definitely more interesting.

我喜欢你可以在户外画一些东西,任何人都可以看到。它对任何人开放,人们必须处理它。在画廊里,同样是旧金山艺术界的150人。街上有一种动感,绝对更有趣。

Work done illegally outdoors or without permission feels like pure freedom to me. I understand how it can upset many in our society, but in the bigger picture, it is ultimately about freedom. We are living in a time where public space has become a commodity for corporations to control and dictate what is seen and heard.

在户外非法或未经允许的工作对我来说是纯粹的自由。我理解这会让我们社会的许多人感到不安,但从更大的角度来看,这最终关乎自由。我们生活在这样一个时代:公共空间已成为企业控制和支配所见所闻的商品。

For me, graffiti means making marks on surfaces using just about anything, be it markers, spray, paint, chalk, lipstick, varnish, ink. Or it can be the result of scratches and incisions. The aim is to maintain the energy created by disturbance or excitement in the street.

对我来说,涂鸦意味着用任何东西在表面做记号,如标记、喷雾、油漆、粉笔、口红、清漆、墨水。或者是刮痕和切口造成的。目的是保持街道上的骚乱或兴奋所产生的能量。

I love biographies. I read Patti Smith's 'Just Kids.' I'm into that time frame in New York, the '70s and '80s. In art school, I read 'Close to the Knives,' the autobiography of the artist and AIDS activist David Wojnarowicz.

我喜欢传记。我读了帕蒂·史密斯的《孩子们》,我进入了纽约70年代和80年代的那段时间框架。在艺术学校,我读了《靠近刀》,这是艺术家和艾滋病活动家大卫·沃贾纳罗维奇的自传。
