Photo: Jade Forever – NYC Tributes
Having grown up around graffiti on the West Coast since 1995, I’ve always admired and respected the work of Jade BTM. Even though I’d never personally met Leonard, we shared many mutual friends and I’d always wanted to meet him as there aren’t many Chinese writers it seems. Unfortunately, that day will never come. But, fortunately for me, I’ve been able to witness a massive amount of tributes go up in Jade’s honor around many neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Included are a selection of photos, some exclusive to 12ozProphet, from my walks around town in the weeks since his passing. For more flicks of Jade’s original work check out his thread in The Heavens section of The Writer’s Forum.
RIP Jade THR/BTM/PCF/BBB/CBDG/KUK … Jade Forever.
