6. Crash

Location: New York

Crash is the first train-writing New York graffiti writer to paint a piece at the wall on Bowery and Houston since it's been reincarnated as New York City's premiere legal mural location. He did a big, bold mural that is absolutely perfect for the location. Too much detail, and you have to look at the wall up close, where you can't see the thing all at once. Crash painted a piece that can be seen in all its glory from across the street, and it's the sort of pop image that the everyday tourists are going to love even if they don't know anything about graffiti.
