Prime

Guffogg and Jim McHugh visit the graffiti artist known as Prime in his south LA warehouse. Prime opens up about his life as a gang member in East LA and getting shot at the age of 16, rendering his tagging arm useless and forcing him to rethink his life and then reaching out to the children of his community to teach them about a better way. Prime uses his own style of writing to express his views of LA through paint and sumi ink that evoke the Asian culture of LA and his Latino heritage, bridging the world of street art with fine art that has made Prime and international art star.
