Sight Zilla rose to notoriety and became known as the “king of South Central'' because of his prolific graffiti career, but his name was catapulted to the national stage when he was handed down the most severe sentencing for graffiti to date. In 2006 he was charged with 70 counts of felony vandalism and faced more than 30 years in prison. His story has been told by various news and radio outlets, and featured on the cover of LA Weekly in 2012 in “Los Angeles’ War on Street Artists”.
