The Fridge has a new public face. “NSF” is the tag* of the NSF crew – a team of graffiti artists that Fridge proprietor Alex Goldstein (pictured) credits with tagging 1 million walls and 100,000 illegal graffiti. NSF? – various meaning have been ascribed, i.e., “Not Strictly Freights” and “Never Show Faces.” Goldstein’s translation: “Non Stop Fun.” (click to enlarge)
*”Tag; a personal signature, usually vandalism with spray-paint, but can be any graffitti. Tag’s can take seconds, or can use multiple colors. Two color tags are usually throw ups, may consist of block or bubble lettering. “Bombs” are usually tri color while pieces are always of the up most complexity – very large, good use of colors, where they will seem to blend together, or bleed, and burn.” Urban Dictionary.
