RIP STAYHIGH149

StayHigh149 from New York City, aka The Voice of the Ghetto, has passed away this week at the age of 61. He was a pioneer and an innovator with his tags and pieces from 1971-1975. He resurfaced in 2000 and his newer tags can still be seen around New York City. You can see his work on flickr and in the book The Faith of Graffiti.
