STAYHIGH1 RIP StayHigh149
One of the original New York greats, Wayne “Stay High 149″ Roberts was a man who had a big hand in pioneering graffiti during it’s early days with his smoking character, an adaption of a character from ‘The Saint’, a popular TV series at the time. A massive influence on the Style Wars generation to follow, he sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 61.

The graff scenes lost one of it’s most important members in Wayne who, born in 1950, he began writing in 1971 and never really stopped, with his iconic tags and character still adorning New York’s walls to this day. No doubt he’ll be sorely missed, Rest in Peace.
