11. JOKER

As a pioneering member of MCA, JOKER put in work when DC was at its most gully. Known for impeccable  letter forms and dynamic blends, his work represented what graffiti should look like.  JOKER studied the regional graffiti styles of various cities and incorporated them into his repertoire. In addition, his stylized execution of classic graffiti art mugs would influence younger writers in DC for many years including RUST and KIER. Highly influential nationwide, his style has evolved from well-executed standard graffiti fare to high-end graphic art.
