One of the more mysterious figures in the scene today, The Reader (aka ReadMoreBooks, aka Boans, aka Rancour, aka OYE, aka probably some other names too) gets up like a graffiti writer, but like a street artist, he appears to have a purpose beyond fame and writing his name. So far, his greatest influence has probably been getting a lot of mainstream street artists to try out paint rollers. He has also become the standard for a group of street artists coming out of left field who like to stay off the grid and float around between graffiti and street art without ever fully embracing the capitalistic culture of either genre.
