Podcast #002 – Seen – Godfather Of Graffiti

The second Podcast continues in English. For this episode they talked to good old Seen from New York, whom we probably don’t need to introduce here. We talk about 45 minutes over five years in the adopted home of Paris, galleries, Style Wars, Subway Graffiti in New York, Mural Art and the question why he is actually called “Godfather of Graffiti”.

1971 to 1984 was the Golden Age of New York graffiti. Three NY writers, Blade, Lee and Seen are considered around the world as the Kings of Graffiti. Seen, aka Richard Mirando, holds a reputation as the Godfather of graffiti due to his significant role in the influential ‘Style Wars’ documentary.
