Zephyr, aka Andrew Witten, is both a graffiti pioneer as well as a gifted author and documentarian. He has co-authored a seminal biography on friend and graffiti legend Dondi White, and has been featured in the graffiti documentaries Wild Style and Bomb It. Featured here is a private work created for a then-girlfriend during the late 1980s. Its use of bubble letters and primary colors is both typical of Zephyr's work, and also speaks to the undeniable influence graffiti was to 1980's graphic design and commercial illustration.
