10 Writers We’re Looking Forward to Painting in 2013 April 30, 2013 – Posted in: Art – Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

With the Spring/Summer graffiti season just around the corner, here’s our list of the top 10 writers we’re looking forward to painting in 2013 along with some of their past pieces so you can see what we’re talking about.

1. Rime – MSK

At the top of the list is the New Jersey native Rime. Jersey Joe is always intertwining original characters with his pieces and trying new things with his letterforms while still keeping a solid letter foundation, his work is very fluid and just exudes fun even to the layman.

2. Totem2 – TATS

Much like Rime, Totem is pushing the boundaries of his letters/style mixing 2d with 3d and doing things we haven’t seen come from anyone else.

3. Revok – MSK

With an organic and usually evil flow, Revok is on the top of many peoples lists for originality and just raw funk.

4. Kem5 – 3A

Known for his All Chrome top-to-bottom freights, Kem is at the top of his game. With coloring and detail techniques that are unmatched, we really want to see what he has in store for us this year.

5. Ces – TMT

When you think of New York graffiti, one of the first writers that has to pop into mind is Ces. With an unmatched track record for originality, Ces always manages to keep true to the classic NY aesthetic while introducing fresh new painting techniques with raw letters.

6. Ewok – 5MH

Ewok is a serious threat, he’s one of few writers that is able to show up to a spot meant for several people and single handedly rock the whole wall with 10-foot tall amazing (and original) characters and then top it off with a clean burner.

7. Does – Love Letters

Known for mind blowing color rendering techniques, The Netherlands native does an amazing job of marrying solid letters with amazing effects.

8. Sen2 – 4B

With massive letters and a great sense of color, Sen2 has continually been delivering amazing work throughout the years. He’s been doing a awesome job at mixing 3d rendering techniques with strong letterforms.

9. Wane – COD

It’s impossible to have a graffiti writer list and somehow not include Wane in it. His pieces always have a classic NY aesthetic mixed with new school funk and colors that make you wanna sit there and take notes.

10. Stae2 – GFR

Strong letters and funky color schemes make Stae2 the final writer to round off our list. His ability to mesh an old school feel with a new school approach makes any wall he is a part of something worth seeing.
