Richard "Richie" Mirando, known as Seen UA, born 1961 in The Bronx, New York, is one of the most well known Graffiti artists in the world, often referred to as the Godfather of Graffiti, although he did not pioneer the movement.
Seen first started to paint on New York's Subway in 1973. His crew United Artists (or simply UA) quickly gained the reputation for producing full-color throw-ups on whole cars.
For the next 16 years his pieces were running across the city and on all lines, but they were especially prominent on the 2,5 and 6 lines. He was responsible for dozens of whole-car top-to-bottoms, many of which have become iconic images of the time.
It was during the very early 1980s that Seen started producing work on canvas, shown by galleries and bought by museums and private collectors across the globe. These included not only solo exhibitions but also group shows with artists such as Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat , Dondi, Quik, Blade], andLee Quinonnes. Despite the high demand for his work in Europe and constant world travel, Seen continued to hit the New York subway trains until 1989, long after increased pressure from the MTA had stopped many from doing so. He was also featured prominently in the 1983 PBS documentary Style Wars
In the late 1980s Seen also turned his talent to Tattoo art, opening Tattoo SEEN, which quickly became one of the most successful studios in New York. Seen's recent work includes three-dimensional sculpture, mixed media work with reclaimed or discarded materials (often found in the street), and a series of hand-painted, limited-edition MTA New York subway maps. He continues to exhibit worldwide and produce work with and alongside artists such as Banksy.
In 2009, the SEEN Gallery opens in Paris before becoming the SEEN Studio's, France. He also has been exhibited at the Fondation Cartier.
In 2010, he has shown at the Magda Danysz Gallery with a solo show on the three floors of the gallery.
In 2011, he signed on with Opera Gallery (12 locations worldwide), and the Paris location featured his work.

The item was well protected and you managed a really fast delivery. A special thank about the low item value you declared. We didn't pay a big taxe, you were helpful. Kind regards.
Won lot. Paid nearly $7000 USD just to be told "oops we don't have it but why not buy a different one for $12000 USD. catawiki is just a link to DIRTY'S website. Where's my compensation..Yes, it is true that we posted a painting we thought was in inventory and was sold. We did try to offer a replacement. BUT it was the same value and NOT more, YOU asked us for a $12,000 painting for $1200 USD? How can we sell a painting for a 90%discount? don't understand why 5 months later this feedback now? at that time all was resolved? Also, what compensation? We never took your money and Catawiki returned your payment immediately. Below is your email. The Batgirl is a $12K painting and 3 times larger than the Joker.
I have been looking through your website and am interested in the Batgirl painting by Seen.
I understand that many of his paintings do not reach there reserve as there are dozens for sale at any time which reduces there value today and in the future. I have bid on a few but the Joker was the only one I have bid up to it’s reserve as it did seem to have that wow factor. Batgirl would be a poor substitute but has some appeal.
I’d be willing to go to $1200 USD, including postage to Miami.
Let me know if this is acceptable and I will arrange payment?
I just realised I purchased Bad Gangster, Sonic, from you previously and I and the kids do like it which gives me confidence to buy from you again.
The seller will ship the item(s) within 3 working days after receiving confirmation of payment.
