I recently came across Chain3’s Flickr profile. It’s good to see guys like him still at it!
Originally from The Bronx, Chain3 started tagging in 1973, and hitting subways in 1974. Setting trends and standards, Chain3 is the first to bring certain style elements into graffiti. Chain writes: “I am the creator of the Forcefield, The Drop clips (bits), The cobblestones (interior designs) that curve around the inside of letters, and the Splash behind a piece!”
You can see more of his early work and some recent wall productions on his flickr profile HERE
