OIN TOGETHER ENTERPRISES (BROOKLYN)

The Golden Age of Graffiti (“GAG”), a subdivision of Join2Gether Enterprises (J2G), announces the release of a first ever, Bobblehead Dolls, of the renowned Graffiti artist Blade I (see attached ad). The creation of the bobbleheads are collaboration between Blade I and GrafKing Shadow, a member of The Rebels (Graf Crew 1973-1979). Shadow is featured in Stations of the Elevated, Manny Kirshner’s groundbreaking graffiti documentary, and is recently seen in Graffiti 365 (p. 167) at the most famous Graf high school ever — Art & Design.

J2G is a community-based organization in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn. We are merchandisers of retro/Americana clothing and items of memorabilia, blending old and new elements into a fashionable statement with a nostalgic note. Through sales of the bobblehead dolls, we plan to raise funding for youth-oriented (anti-felony) art programs. Apart of our goal is to give graf a Positive image.
