Graf legend ‘Stay High 149,’ born Wayne Roberts, died on Monday (June 11th) at Calvary Hosptial in the Bronx, reports theNew York Times. The influential graffiti artist made his mark in the 70’s and 80’s and disappeared from the scene before realizing his popularity in the 2000s.

In his subway travels he noticed other tags — TAKI 183, JOE 182 and PRAY — and followed suit with his own creation, according to his site. He said he could hit as many as 100 trains a day and twice that at night, when he sometimes did larger pieces.
