The 50 Greatest NYC Graffiti Artists

26. Noc 167

Alias: Boy Five

Neighborhood: The Bronx

Years Active: 1976-1984

Noc 167 gets my vote as the greatest stylemaster. He was mentored in the mid-'70s by style greats Nic 707 and Stan 153 who encouraged his drawing ability, as well. During the late '70s, as Noc's reputation spread, he was offered free spraypaint by other writers who just wanted to see him paint. Two of his most famous cars are the Boy 5 whole car with Dondi and his Style Wars whole-car done in 1980.
