IN PRINT: Rated #3 All-time Graffiti film by Enrico Isamu Oyama for Bijutso Techo (monthly art magazine in Japan)
“A new Wizard of Oz for the Anarchist Street Youth.” Charlie Ahearn Director of Wild Style
“Wastedland 2 ambitiously holds up graffiti as a mirror of mankind’s search for meaning.” Isabel Zacharias Willamette Weekly
“Unreality has made an unexpected narrative incursion into the usually predictable world of Graffiti Art or maybe this is Graffiti’s break-in into the abandoned back lot of the Brothers Grimm.” Bill Daniel Director of Who is Bozo Texino? : The Secret History of Hobo Graffiti and author of Mostly True.
“Wastedland 2 is a road trip without road, a therapeutic buddy film without saccharine, staged in a post apocalyptic terrain that is revealed as graffiti oasis. The hapless beer- and weed-fueled journey is pure youthful angst suspended in chemicals and many in the audience laughed in recognition at the head-banging frustration voiced about fundamental life questions by these furry characters.” Jamie Rojo & Steven Harrington of Brooklyn Street Art
