Like a lot of graffiti writers, Kris Kanaly started young. First, by doodling a tag name, “P-nut,” when he was six years old. Then, by picking up cans of spray paint in the ditch near his childhood home in Oklahoma City. He eventually settled on an alias he still uses to this day: RHAK.

It’s the name he chose to spray paint on a wall in the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center on Sunday night. The letters are outlined in yellow, orange, blue and gray. They look like they’re stepping off the wall.

A man trying to stay off the grid, one who already is, and an opportunity for those longing for simpler days highlight this week’s OneSix8. 

In 2009, U.K. citizen David Bond set out to completely disappear from the state’s surveillance programs. In his attempt to fly under the radar in the world’s third most intrusive surveillance country, he left his pregnant wife and child. Soon, Bond discovered just how much the government knew about him and his family as two private investigators began tracking him across the state.
