SIMPLES VS. WILDSTYLE: Letter Progression
Simples - Graffiti letters
WildStyle is defined in the Urban Dictionary as a graffiti style involving complex, interlocking
letters with arrows, link-ups and other flourishes. Wildstyle is the stuff you absolutely can't
read unless you have studied it or know the writer who did it.

Here's a perfect example of WildStyle by graffiti writer
Meres One, who is a master of this
technique. The secret behind this kind of complicated writing is this: no matter how much you
deconstruct, break apart or transform a letter, the structure of the letter has to remain intact.
In other words, an "A" still looks like an "A" and so on. Look very carefully and you will be
able to make out the letters "M-E-R-E-S". It's not easy. Learning to read this kind of
complicated wildstyle takes some practice. It is like a secret code.

scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place.[1] Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and it has existed since ancient times, with
examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.[2] In modern times, paint (particularly spray paint) and marker pens have become the most commonly used graffiti
materials. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property owner's consent is considered defacement and vandalism, which is a punishable crime. Graffiti may also express
underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. Within hip hop culture, graffiti has evolved alongside hip hop music,
b-boying, and other elements.[3] Unrelated to hip-hop graffiti, gangs use their own form of graffiti to mark territory or to serve as an indicator of gang-related activities. Controversies that surround
graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials, law enforcement, and writers who wish to display and appreciate work in public locations. There are many different types and styles of
graffiti and it is a rapidly developing art form whose value is highly contested and reviled by many authorities while also subject to protection, sometimes within the same jurisdiction, modern style

The essence of the graffiti artform is to take a simple, basic letter and modify into a more
complex form.

Simples are letters that are easy to read, like Straight letters and Bubble letters.
Indie 184 and Seen are two examples of graffiti writers
who work with Simple letters.

Here's a beautiful piece by
