Throwback Thursday: SEEN UA

By - Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Today’s Throwback Thursday is a tribute to the godfather himself SEEN UA. This shot shows SEEN working on a whole car with JSON. The finished piece is a stunning tick-tock with a beautiful starry backdrop and a wizard Mickey Mouse as the center of the piece. 

Seen first started painting trains in 1973 and continued until 1989. The work Seen produced during this period is untouchable and embedded in the minds of all graffiti writers. Just put on “Style Wars” or open “Subway Art” and you will understand why Seen is often called the “Godfather of Graffiti.”

Richard “Seen” Mirando has been doing well since the end of the train era. Seen has produced his own clothing line, collaborated with Kidrobot, and published his own book.
