Die Veröffentlichung von Style Wars 1983 trug maßgeblich zur Verbreitung der Graffitikultur von New York über den Globus bei. Veli&Amos begeben sich in „Style Wars 2“ fast 30 Jahre später auf eine Tour von Europa über New York bis in den Mittleren Osten, um den aktuellen Graffitis, ihren Künstlern und Sammler auf die Spur zu kommen; eine ernste, derb-komische und wilde Reise durch Galerien, Küchen und Krisengebiete. Mit den beiden Filmen zeigt Backjumps zwei unentbehrliche Zeitdokumente von Straßenkultur und ihrem Kunstwerden.

R.i.P. King Robbo

R.i.P King Robbo, a graffiti legend and pionier of the UK and European Graff movement, lost the fight after beeing 3 years in koma, after an accident. Recently mostly getting noticed by the world for his battle over a wall with Banksy, he was an outstanding writer active since 1985, who had found his place in the european Graffhistory very early. Rest in Peace King Robbo

First Berlin Subway Wholecar 1989

West-Berlin in may 1989, after 3 months of starting hitting the subways in regular for the first time, by my old Partner Kage (GFA) and myself with pannels and e-to-es. I decided to show the pictures of our new hobby to Maxim (R.i.p). He came up with the idea to go one step further and said: "We have to do Wholecars". He asked me which lay-up would be the best for that and I reply Breitenbachstation lay-up. We setted up a meeting 3 days later and Maxim brought Asek (AC) with him. And so, we 3 went for this masterpiece (for 1989 in Berlin). This Wholecar was published, after more then 20 years for the first time, in the Documentary Unlike-U.
I have to notice, that on the right a t-to-b mushroom done by Maxim is not pictured, also the Wholecar is completely done with Marabou Buntlack, i mention this for Ces53 from Rotterdam, who once said in an interview, that we didn't know about Buntlack in Berlin, before they came to Berlin in 91.
