SK8 RIP - New Wall

SK8 had tremendous influence over Los Angeles graffiti. It has been 17 years since he passed away and his legend and memory continues to be kept alive. This past June, I attended a memorial BBQ in SK8's honor and was amazed by how many people turned out to celebrate his memory. Update: March 2011 - new pictures of finished wall

This wall in Los Angeles has been continuously painted since SK8's passing to honor his memory. The latest one was completed about a month ago by members of Los Angeles' LOD crew. I also dipped into my archives and found some old pictures of this wall with each one remembering SK8.
