Top 25 Chicago Graffiti Writers of All Time on Complex

This article was posted by Senior Editor 2 years, 9 months, 1 week, 4 days, 21 hours ago.

Today’s 12oz Forum Shot of the Day brought to mind a post our friends over at Complex did last week, ranking the 25 Greatest Chicago Graffiti Writers of All Time.

Complex reached out to Wdata, who was a contributor to the book A History of American Graffiti. “It would be easy to pick 25 writers from the early 80’s alone… Style quantity, originality, fame, and longevity were all considered while determining the all time 25 greatest writers from Chicago.”

We decided to comb through the The Midwest Best and the Chicago Trains threads in the 12ozProphet Writers Forum to pull some selects of some of Chicago’s stars. Head to Complex to check out their full list and see who made the final cut.
