High Writer

NYC writer KATSU demonstrates the functionality of the latest tool from the Graffiti Research Lab: The High Writer. Drawing on previous paint-pole designs from innovators like Barry McGee and the Citizens Against Ugly Street Spam, the High Writer is a tool that amplifies the scale and height of marks rendered with a spray can. The high writer is easily constructed from materials available at Home Depot and your local bike shop. To make your own High Writer check out the DIY instructions . All praise be to the Eyebeam R&D OpenLab.
