LA's Top 25 Graffiti Writers of All Time



Revok lists the top 25 Los Angeles Graffiti writers of all time.


Revok composed his own personal list of the 'Best Of' Los Angeles graffiti. The list was composed for Complex Magazine, which has a pain in the ass way of displaying the list where you have to scroll through each page one at a time and can't see the list in its entirety.

As for the list, M&F has hardly been around Los Angeles long enough to be qualified to write a list like this. It has a lot of big names, and most of the writers we are familiar with, but not all of them. For the most part, the things that Revok wrote about the particular attributes of the artists we are familiar with is right on. And it was cool to read what Revok admires in other artists.

That said, it is a list. And lists are always prone to complainers, folks who people feel were left out, and people that think it was done wrong, and most of the comments on Complex are of this nature. All we can say is that all of the writers mentioned have been doing super impressive stuff and are at the top of the league. And if you don't like Revok's list, try making your own, and you will see how difficult a list can be.

  4. Just in case youve been under a rock for 10years,
    Banksy is not from Los Angeles. This list was about LA Grafitti-
    NOT International Street Art. And I agree that Wisk shouldve made that list before Chaka but thats his opinion so whatevs.
