1st To Do It: Larry Lovebone
“1st To Do It” chronicles some of the most innovative, daring and unknown mavericks in the fields of art, music, sports and fashion. Through arduous research, spanning the stacks at toppled libraries to unearthed microfilm, these pioneers were the first people to do things that seem quite commonplace in today’s society. It’s often disputed in the world of graffiti just who was the first writer to put their moniker up illegally. The vanguard of American graffiti artists, including REVOK, RIME and SABER contribute to the legend of Larry Lovebone, who many art historians have disregarded and omitted from the chronicles of style-writing due to his other cultural contributions during the sexual revolution in the 1960s. In his own words, Mr. Lovebone tells the tale of his infamous tag and its origins in his ability to bed copious amounts of women from every race, culture, creed and religion. “1st To Do It” is an ongoing series from production house BankShot composed of short documentaries that sheds a much-needed light on the people who made their mark first.
