Yesterday we featured part 1 of Terror161’s profile on the old school graffiti writer Flint… who was among the first generation of graffiti writers to ever prowl the halls of the legendary High School of Art & Design in New York City. This photo was taken around 1974 and shows how bombed the bathroom walls were. The Public High School looked like a dive bar!
The figure on the right is SJK171 who was a first generation writer and UGA member. The A&D halls are still a hub for young graffiti writers today but this photo tells the story that when the graffiti wave swept across the city it quickly reached epidemic proportions in the school.
