Richard "Seen" Mirando, a pioneer of graffiti, was born in 1961 in the Bronx, New York. Considered one of the most influential graffiti artists in the world, Seen began painting on New York's subway trains in the 1970s, quickly becoming an iconic figure in the city's underground scene.

His works, characterized by bold and colorful letters, captured the essence of the burgeoning hip-hop culture movement. Seen played a crucial role in transitioning graffiti from the streets to more traditional art forms, such as canvas and gallery exhibitions. His pieces are famous for their dynamic energy and distinctive style, blending elements of comic books and pop culture.

In the 1980s, Seen extended his art beyond trains and city walls, bringing his vibrant creations to art galleries worldwide. His work has been exhibited in prestigious venues like the Sidney Janis Gallery in New York, establishing graffiti as a legitimate and respected art form.

Beyond traditional graffiti pieces, Seen also explored other mediums, including sculpture and tattooing. His sculptures, often made from recycled materials, reflect the same energy and style as his canvas works and murals.

Seen continued to innovate in his art, never limiting himself to one style or medium. In the 2000s, he began working with airbrushing, adding a new dimension to his creations. This evolution allowed Seen to remain relevant and influential in the ever-changing world of street art.

His influence on future generations of street artists is immeasurable. Seen is often cited as an inspiration by many contemporary artists. His ability to evolve and adapt while staying true to his Bronx graffiti roots has made him a living legend in the art world.

Despite his international success, Seen has remained true to his artistic identity. He continues to create, experiment, and push the boundaries of graffiti art. His legacy is a testament to the richness and depth of street culture, and his work continues to inspire and captivate art enthusiasts around the world.

Today, Seen is recognized not only as a graffiti pioneer but also as a versatile and innovative artist. His contributions to urban art have paved the way for new artistic expressions and explorations, and his imprint in the art world is indelible.
