Sever has cleverly depicted a fictionalized scene where the iconic graffiti writer from the Bronx, Stay High 149 (in the yellow sweater) and his crew examine the work of the L.A. innovator “Chaz”, the Godfather of Chicano graffiti. As Sever says of this piece, “Homage is offered to these legendary writers, to the early era of graffiti’s spectacular rise, and to the processes they developed and were allied with. Speaking of an alternative view of this piece, “It further references the colorful exuberance of those days in a style that pays homage to the “Fat Albert” television cartoon.”
