Common Folk started off as the name for a small collective of graffiti artists but soon evolved into a philosophy for everyday life and everyday people. It's an ideology that binds together all people that approach life in creative ways, breeding a common folk atmosphere of inspiration amongst artists, writers, painters, graffiti writers, journalists, photographers, odd thinkers, d.i.y.'ers, doodlers, etc. It's about igniting a thought or sparking a smile on common people, just trying to disrupt the monotony of the all too common daily grind.
