DIM2 started graffiti in 2006, Like anyone who launched graffiti in Korea, DIM2 encountered graffiti through the media at first. Films like Wild Style (1983) or Style Wars (1980), the media (the Internet played a huge role), or graffiti occasionally seen in Korea aroused my curiosity, calling me into this world. Most of DIM2’s graffiti is performed on the street.
