Allen Benedikt aka 12 Oz. Prophet aka Also Known As and G

Allen Benedikt launched the graffiti zine “12 Oz. Prophet” in 1993.  It featured profiles and interviews with up and coming artists (at the time)  such as Barry McGee, Os Gemeos and Shepard Fairey just to name a few. Once the zine stopped being produced, a clothing company and website followed suit.  Today, 12 Oz. Prophet is considered one of the leading street art/graffiti websites in the world.  Allen Benedikt is also known as…. Also Known As.  When I met him, he was super cool and I thank him for being an inspiration to website creators like myself!  He even gave me some Also Known As stickers.  Thanks again!
