fi5e is a graffiti artist in New York City. Using both computers and hands-on skill, fi5e creates artwork that is aesthetically appealing, while also engaging the viewer through form and content. His All City Council Project has been viewed the most-- In response to the sticker law passed by the New York City Council last year, which stated that those with idenification on any sticker or decal would be in violation of the law, fi5e created text image art (ASCII art) of each of the council members with their detailed information. He proceeded to venture out into the boroughs and posted them within proximity of each of the council members.
