Five years before REBEL8 began, in April of ’98, I started a website called HiFiArt. It was San Francisco’s first and only website dedicated exclusively to local graffiti. For years HiFiArt reigned supreme as one of the most popular graffiti websites worldwide and attracted thousands of visitors daily. I spent countless hours updating the website every few days. This was back in the days before the advent of the digital camera, so I would have to photograph, develop, use a scanner to get the photos into digital format, then do HTML to make it all come together on the site; a true labor of love. It was during this time I actually met Mike Giant and built a lasting friendship that would later become REBEL8. So to the many supporters and followers of HiFiArt, here are all the original photos and a few more.
