Lot description
This rare, early 1985 self-portrait is a prime example of the artist's talent and skill using spray enamel on canvas.

Dondi White, aka Donald Joseph White, aka The Style Master General, was one of the seminal figures of the early Graffiti scene having fathered the progressive hand styles of the movement. He gained notoriety in the late 70s and early 80s "bombing" whole train cars with his Vaughn Bode inspired characters and wild style lettering. He was perhaps the most influential graffiti writer in terms of style. Dondi died in 1998 of AIDS.

NOTE: Slight fraying along cut canvas margins
