“What does that say?”
“That says C-E-S. One of the NY legends that helped graffiti become the art form it is today.”
Born Robert Michael Provenzano, 1970, NY, CES is a New York City leader of the new Wild Style look in contemporary graffiti. Attention to streamlining and aerodynamics were key to the CES formula for alphabetic reconfiguration. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the graffiti innovations of CES have been relentlessly knocked off by his peers and have influenced the new generation of graffiti writers in the U.S. and througout the world.
CES has been a graffiti artist since 1983 and continues to produce powerful visual artwork today, never settling-living from his art and learning from his art. CES has been featured in the New York Times, Rad Pages, The Source, Mass Appeal, TimeOut-New York, and Sneaker Pimps-Motug.
