Who is Neck Face?

Neck Face. His graf style is no-style. You’ve seen his scrawlings on the old broken Shell gas station garage at 20th and Valencia. On the side of a tall building visable from 9th and mission. On a utility box near the 4th street bus stop at mission. And countless other places in SF.
But this past week, wandering through Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, I almost dropped dead when I saw the neck face tags all over a foot bridge. Look!

I have a friend who says she knows a friend who knows neck face.
Neck Face is Ugly! Neck Face is Global. But who is Neck Face?
UPDATE: Check it out, Neck Face made talk of the town in the New Yorker earlier this year.

    He should be easy to find. We have a description of his face.

    Hooray, I’m not the only one to have noticed! It was strange–I visited Tokyo briefly and took dozens of photos of NECK FACE sightings throughout the city, then when visiting San Francisco for an interview I saw one of the tags here as well. It was kismet, I swear.

    Aside from several photos sitting on my hard drive, I unfortunately have no more to offer aside from a Google search for the phrase “neck face”.
