25 Things You Didn't Know About the Histories of Street Art and Graffiti

Charlie Ahearn met Lee Quinones two years before he began working with Lee and Fab 5 Freddy on Wild Style, but they had not stayed in touch and Charlie had no way to contact Lee.

Charlie met Fab 5 Freddy in a chance encounter at the historic Times Square Show during the summer of 1980, and Fab 5 Freddy was able to reintroduce Charlie and Lee. Soon after that, the three of them began working together on Wild Style.
