Goldie & the New York Spray Can Artists 1989

This was a film directed by John O'Brien in 1989 about Graffitti (Spray Can) Artists from New York alongside the UK's Goldie (Clifford Joseph Price) pre gold teeth and the James Bond role. 

Despite appearances, the crew did not go to New York ... they ventured no further afield than Goldie's original home turf, the notorious Heath Town in Wolverhampton ... as the U.S. guys (T Kid, Nicer, Vulcan & Bio) were in Birmingham UK to exhibit and demonstrate their form of graffiti art. 

They used library footage of New york and intercut it with their own footage to create the finished short film. 

Around 4.50 into the film ... Goldie says that he doesn't write his name as an art form (the NY Guys style was often based on them writing their own names and embellishing them) because his name doesn't mean anything to anybody over here in the UK ... ironic, considering the relative fame he went on to have!!!
