FREE KET!

In October 2006, a Special Investigations Unit of the New York Police Department performed a search of writer, artist and publisher Alain KET Maridueña’s From Here to Fame (FHTF) home office. They seized documents, computers, art supplies and equipment used in publishing three of FHTF’s titles. The seized materials included historical photos being used for an upcoming book on the history of New York City’s graffiti movement, images for a book being published with Michael O’Mara books from London and slide shows for university lectures. As an artist, historian and journalist, all of the materials seized are used for work purposes and pose no risk to anyone. The seized property was to be analyzed and, if deemed criminal by the District Attorney’s office, indictments would be handed down.

They did.

Today, Alain faces a possible 20 years in prison in what has become increasingly clear is a politically motivated attempt to silence a writer, publisher, historian and artist whose work popularizes an art form criminalized by city government policy.
