The story behind this wallpaper is pretty crazy. JEST is a graffiti artist from NYC, who was also part of famed New York shop/brand Alife. I mainly followed him for his writing though. Back in the 90’s, I would drive around all over NYC shooting photos of graffiti.
Fast forward to 2012… I Instagram a set of my old graffiti photos, JEST being one of them (bottom left). I tagged JEST and he ended up commenting and asking for a scan of the pic, which I provided. In turn, I took a shot in the dark and asked him if he would be into hooking up a wallpaper for Defgrip, and he did.
So basically, I shot a film photo in the Bronx during the mid 90’s, Instagram’d it in 2012 and end being in contact with one of the artists. Crazy.
