In Memory of Late Graf Writer P.Nut 2

P.Nut Robert Hayes

Rest in Peace P.Nut 2. Graffiti writing culture is getting older and as time passes, we lose more and more soldiers. There aren’t any soldiers who survived the Civil War still around, but we can still touch and feel the residue from that conflict today. Our condolences go out to the family of legendary ’70s-era “graffiti” artist Robert “P.Nut 2” Hayes. His influence continues to live on via the index fingers of artists all over the globe.

Terror 161 shared his memories of P.Nut 2 on 12ozProphet saying,

“Golden eras of graff are subjective, but P.NUT 2 wrote with the greatest during the period when piecing evolved into an artform. Some of his outlines came directly from his friend Phase 2 whose “P” greatly influenced his own. He came up during the single hit era, writing Bobby 172 and lasted through the mid 70’s doing some of the nastiest most iconic pieces ever with the most hallowed crews of the period.”
