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.
#7) Another artist that does Calligraffiti just like El Seed is Niels Shoe Meulman, also known as Shoe. His Calligraffiti pieces have been shown in various international exhibitions and are part of several museum collections.
