The 50 Greatest NYC Graffiti Artists

18. Jester

Alias: Dye 167

Neighborhood: The Bronx

Years Active: 1972-1977

There were a lot of active throw-up specialists in the '70s. The ones that made this list had to bring something else to the table, and for Jester it was style. He had pretty much done everything else in writing by 1975, and he was highly competitive; the throw-up became the next step for him, hitting all lines with his Dye 167s or DY 167 bubble letters until his retirement in 1977.
