Thunders Crew, or the thunder boys, is a Graffiti crew.
Formed in 2013 with the goal of bringing together in the same group
writers with different valences but that already for many years shared walls
and socialized in painting weekends.
The intention of the group is to make graffiti. Letters with flow,
combined colors, but with different styles. Old-fashioned Hall of Fame, or just
silvers and lyrics to spend a morning with.
The group is formed by Mosaik’s history, one of the first to mess with
cans in Portugal, he is, still today, one of the biggest influences of the
group, by Bray’s fats who pours technique and skill in regular videos that
addict the internet. By Chure’s flow, who draws letters that fit and define a
name, by Klit’s good mood who sketches letters that are not flowers, which are
cut with detail and the organic thoroughness of someone who has long known what
he does, by Mar’s characters, tangles of ideas, mouths, eyes and noses that
humanize any concrete wall and by Monster’s type, a designer by profession with
ocd in making clean strokes and beautiful phrases.
Thunders is a symbol, a representation with graphic purpose and a
lightning manifesto of who does Graffiti for Graffiti's sake.
The goal was to cross elements that coexist in the streets: Street Basket and Graffiti.
Both played on the margins of institutions and lived with their own codes and rules. As
a graffiti crew we found perfect to carry the letterings and characters from our walls.
Creating with them stains and patterns that make it alive, and support the structural
geometry of the field.
