Welcome to Art Crimes, a gallery of graffiti art from the US, Europe, and cities around the world. This project was started with a handful of photos from Atlanta and Prague by Susan Farrell in May 1994, and the site went public that September. Susan teamed up with photographer Brett Webb in September 1994, who also worked in support of the site in various ways until 2005.
Art Crimes has won many awards for excellence, including Cool Site of the Day (1994) and top-10 nominee for Best of the Web (1995). This site has also been featured in Flashbacks, Twelve Ounce Prophet, Blitzkreig, Scientific American, Newsweek, Wired, Village Voice, Discovery Channel, Radio France, ZDTV's Internet Tonight, New York Times, USA Today, and many other fine publications.
By July 2004, Art Crimes had thousands of images from 445 cities around the world. Art Crimes was the first graffiti site on the net, and we're still one of the biggest, although many other interesting and useful siteshave since sprung up.
Founded at a time when digital cameras didn't even exist, FatCap is an old-time player. At the beginning, it was a simple photo gallery web-page where we posted the pictures we had taken while we were skipping school (sorry, ma). Later, in 2001, it became aninteractive portal where artists could have their own page, at a time when neither the blogs nor MySpace and Facebook existed. Since then, it kept growing and gathering a strong and faithful community.
Later in 2007, after we made great additions to the team, we decided to get global and cover the international graffiti on a brand new blog. At the same time we were launching that blog, we started a crazy project, that became, after months of conception, and even more months of development, the website you're surfing on. The purpose has always been the same since the beginning: provide a top-notch yet simple product, to give an exhaustive snapshot of the street-art culture all over the world.
