LEGENDARY GRAFFITI ARTIST SEEN

Richard "Richie" Mirando, known as Seen UA, born 1961 in The Bronx, New York, is one of the most well known graffiti artists in the world, often referred to as the Godfather of Graffiti, although he did not pioneer the movement. Seen first started to paint on New York's subway in 1973. His crew United Artists (or simply UA) quickly gained the reputation for producing full-color throw-ups on whole cars with members such as Pjay, Duster, Sin, and his brother Mad. For the next 16 years his pieces were running across the city and on all lines, but they were especially prominent on the 2, 5, and 6 lines. He was responsible for dozens of whole-car top-to-bottoms, many of which have become iconic images of the time. (READ MORE ON HIS WIKI PAGE)
