The 50 Greatest NYC Graffiti Artists

13. Caine 1

Neighborhood: Queens

Years Active: 1973-1976

Caine 1 wrote almost exclusively on the 7 line in Queens. He rarely followed the current styles and was known primarily as a whole-car specialist. He painted cartoon imagery and was probably the first writer to take a crack at realism with his depiction of Alice Cooper. On the night of the bi-centennial, Caine was responsible for putting together a group of writers that painted 10 whole-cars - one of only two whole trains ever painted.
