+ OVERVIEW

SNIPE1 was born in Tokyo in 1974. As a pioneer among Japanese graffiti writers, Snipe1 has been active since the dawn of Japan's graffiti scene and later threw himself into the graffiti world of early 1990s New York. Since then, he has traveled to various countries establishing connections with graffiti communities all around the world. Snipe1's graffiti draws upon the sensibility of street culture but incorporates an edge of "dirtiness" that lends to an unmistakable individual style. By pushing the boundaries, he continuously dares to toe the danger of breaking stereotypes.
