In 1980 New York style-master Dondi White painted his legendary top-to-bottom whole car 'Children Of The Grave (Again)'
and had the whole process documented by photographer Martha Cooper. The pictures subsequently appeared in graffiti Bible Subway Art. 
We all saw Dondi painting long before we knew who he was, in the video for Malcolm Maclaren's Buffalo Gals and as Lee Quinones' 'stunt double' in Wild Style. For many fledgling UK writers this was the first glimpse of how it was done in New York, and how smooth you could look putting the outline on your piece...if you had the skills, of course.
