Yesterday, grafitti artist StayHigh149 sadly passed away. He is considered one of the most influential artists and a pioneer of grafitti and was called a “superstar” of the graffiti world in the late 1970s. His trademark includes a smoking version of the stick figure from the 1960’s British television program “The Saint” and is considered one of the most famous graffiti tags in the world.
We were lucky to meet Wayne Roberts aka. StayHigh149 aka. The Voice of the Ghetto in 2010 and and we are extremely proud that we got to work with this very humble guy for our 4-E basketball series. The foot print he left in the world will always be remembered. RIP. The Nation of Hoop salutes you.
