JACOB GOTTLIEB "I DON'T NORMALLY DO THIS"

 

Jacob Gottlieb is a Brooklyn based skateboarder and artist who we got the pleasure to meet a few months ago through a mutual friend.

When we heard that he wanted to document his latest illicit project, we were all for it. But we had never done anything like this, so when the matter of making a video out of it came into our hands, we had no idea how to go about it or what to even except.

We met up with Jacob in his Brooklyn apartment, which was very inviting, and got down to business. We went down to the apartment basement and watched as he spraypainted his work onto a huge canvas as he told us more and more about himself and the project. In the week to follow we made our way to the lower east side and illegally made our way into a chinatown building and then finally went up to the rooftop where we hung the giant canvas. 

What you're about to see is something almost completely spontaneous, enjoy!
