MSG has been creating large-scale graffiti murals in Miami, Florida for close to 20 years. Artists range from sculptors and bombers to fine artists and illustrators. The MSG crew started when a group of up and coming artists were doing a new style of graffiti that they considered Miami Style Graffiti. MSG members didnâ€™t feel that the established crews, who were still doing 80â€™s style New York graffiti at the time, represented their work so they started their own movement. Back then there wasnâ€™t the internet to lean on for inspiration; there was break dance movies, zines and the competition. The older artists kept their techniques to themselves because they were threatened by the younger artists who were getting up everywhere and backing that up with first-rate productions. Now MSG is the established crew, but times have changed and now they feel part of the same community that once persecuted them.
