Graffiti // Tuesday, June 12, 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.

Opening: Roid "More Than Ever" @ Topsafe, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
We are deeply disappointed that we are unable to see Roid’s debut solo exhibition “More than Ever” with Topsafe London in person. The artist’s work is a mix and is influenced by typography, design, geometry, Manga, computers, robots, music and the list goes on, with one eye catching color palette for sure. His work has been courting our attention for a while and from these pictures one could easy think the canvases were created digitally.

In association with the Detroit Beautification Project, Revok and Rime collaborated in painting this large mural packed with a variety of visual awesomeness.  Aside from the quality pieces from these two, Rime painted an angry yet comical animal eating one of his signature girl characters who are running rampant all over the wall.

Graffiti // Sunday, June 10, 2012
Baer has been painting the funniest drug-induced scenarios over the last year with this one being a favorite of ours.  All the celebrity cats are included, with the background cleverly spelling K-hole!  It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a party..ehhhh!!!!

Taki 183

Graffiti // Saturday, June 09, 2012
Although this picture could easily open up the floodgates for various jokes, we will just praise Taki 183 for his early pioneering of graffiti and for still being down to rock a tag with a green polo tucked in.  Plus a big ol’ smile!  Photo taken during installation of the “Art in the streets” show in Los Angeles last year.
