24. PEAR

PEAR gets around. Emerging from the ranks of 2DK L.A.B. in 2005, PEAR quickly made a name in DC. Soon after, PEAR was rolling with HOA crew and painting spots with partners AMEN and REZIST.  But DC would not be able to hold PEAR for long, and over the last four years PEAR’s name has popped up around the country and internationally as well. With a solid understanding of the basics of traditional graffiti style and regional variations, PEAR continues to set the bar for the newer generations of DC writers, as the name PEAR appears next to some of the culture's most high profile writers.
