Abstract Graffigraphy.

After making the case that graffiti is just another form of calligraphy, which we'll call graffigraphy, it stands to reason then, that there would also be artists making Abstract, Graffigraphy.
A good case in point would be the work of West One.

I came across his work at the Galerie Magda Danysz quite a while back, but couldn't find out much else about him and wondered if he had just dropped out of the scene. This time 'round though, I came across this short piece in HypeBeast and he's doing just fine. Like many other graffiti artists these days he's learned how to join the system and turn a pretty penny.

You'll find a great slideshow of his work, including installation shots, Here.

When you visit his Website, check out Walls and Trains.
