Partake in NYC graffiti history at this tribute to street-art legend Michael “Iz the Wiz” Martin, who died in 2009. A memorable character in Henry Chalfant’s 1983 documentary Style Wars, Iz was known for defining the classic NYC lettering style, and his work was ubiquitous on the city’s elevated subway lines in the late ’70s and ’80s. Each year since his death, painters and crews such as Rebel, NSA, Zimad TD4 and Demer have gathered at 5 Pointz to throw up pieces dedicated to this aesthetic pioneer.
