12. SIME

SIME was a military brat who cut his graffiti teeth in Berlin. Germany. After returning stateside in 1996, he settled in Washington, DC to attend school. No stranger to piecing and bombing, SIME found his way around and began burning it up. He soon linked up DEMON 202 and DEOS and formed DOT COM crew and helped to introduce 3D graffiti to DC. DOT COM crew painted several seminal large-scale graffiti murals, including a three-story retail store on the corner of 14th and U Street NW in 1998. SIME’s pieces would sometimes stretch out to over twenty-five feet in length, dwarfing most other writer’s pieces.
