Tommy Tam is an incredible muralist that has been painting the wall at the Wah Lum Temple. We have named it “The Great Wall of Wah Lum”. He is incredibly talented and chooses the tool of spray can over paintbrush. We chat all about graffiti, street art, and murals.
Fair Warning: There may be some 80s flashbacks in this episode. Hip-hop culture is defined by four key stylistic elements: MCing/rapping, DJing/scratching with turntables, break dancing, and graffiti writing.
A few weeks ago I interviewed DJ Mike Relm, and have often discussed hip-hop on the show with Adisa Banjoko. Today, I explore the graffiti writing element with Tommy, who has painted worldwide. He also discusses the evolution of the art over the decades.
