WANE COD ‘Product Of New York’
New Paintings And Drawings By Wane COD (NYC)

‘Wane COD is undoubtedly one of the best writers of the graffiti subculture still to date. He has put in years of work and has definitely cemented himself amongst the graffiti greats. From smashing the subways during the heyday of New York City graffiti, to doing remarkably fresh and technical masterpieces and productions in the most exotic locales, Wane has done it all. He continues to push his style to new heights while still maintaining that classic New York flava and flow.’ -12 OZ PROPHET
