Wiki

Nick is a shy and rebellious teenage graffiti artist who roams the Portland and Seattle streets late at night, looking for empty walls to tag. But when he meets and become friends with another tagger, he starts to emerge from his alienated shell. Featuring striking cinematography, carefully sparse dialogue, and a surprisingly nuanced performance from newcomer Ruben Bansie-Snellman as Nick, this indie from writer/director James Bolton became a critical success on the festival circuit.

James Bolton ('Eban and Charley') is emerging as a filmmaker of considerable note. As writer, producer and director of THE GRAFFITI ARTIST he is introducing a new realm of American verismo that is beautiful to watch, touching in content, and a creatively conceived film from beginning to end.    Portland, present time. Nick (a young Dutch actor Ruben Bansie-Snellman whose magnetism on the camera recalls the early James Dean) is a teenager who lives the solitary life, committed …
