Graffiti: Gaze on Haze

 

I had no idea that Eric Haze, one of the original graf artists – as in Style Wars, Bombin‘, the Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfont books – designed album covers for pivotal rap releases like Public Enemy‘s Yo! Bum Rush The Show as well as creating the eternally funky logo for Tommy Boy records. My bad indeed.

 

 

 

Great art, a varied back catalogue of work and a humble but still hungry guy… all this can be seen in a brief but enjoyable Fool’s Gold video.
