XCIA: Street Illegal

Hank O’Neal’s street art project spans four decades of dazzling­—mostly illicit—street art. Over the next 35 years, the 71-year old photographer (whose street moniker is XCIA) snapped more than 20,000 pictures of New York City’s vibrant street art, capturing luminaries from Haring and Basquiat to Banksy and J.R. along with thousands of other talented artists.
