Wayne Roberts, better known as Stay High 149, passed today at the age of 61. Most will remember him as the NYC graffiti pioneer who dotted the city with his Smoker glyph, now as iconic as the Yankees’ logo. Wayne was a close friend of the Frank family, regularly dropping by the office to make a few jokes or work on a canvas.
Even with his declining health, Wayne was in high spirits—a resilient presence who never lost his love for art in all its forms. A true legend, The Voice of the Ghetto speaks on. via FRANK151
