StayHigh 149 Rest In PeaceGraffiti // Tuesday, 12 Jun 2012
Legendary New York graffiti writer, Wayne “StayHigh 149 Roberts, passed away yesterday at the age of 61. The artist who began writing in 1971 was known for his smoking stick figure and uni-wide “Voice of the Ghetto” tags. After disappearing completely in 1975, it would be 25 years until Stayhigh surfaced again, emerging with a well-attended gallery show. Stayhigh continued to write his name in the street despite his age and influenced generations of writers. Here is a collection of images picked off from around the web.
