Stay High 149, aka Wayne Roberts, 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. Rest in peace.
Here are a few of the many obituaries and reactions to Stay High 149’s death from around the web:
