While freight moniker writing has a long history of characters, it's somewhat different from the modern tradition of using a logo or a character to work in that grey area between street art and graffiti. Many of the artists now using logos and characters in that grey area, particularly artists in Europe—like Pez, M. Chat, Chanoir, Pure Evil, and members of the Burning Candy crew—have El Xupet Negre to thank for pioneering the style and keeping it up for over 20 years now.
