Rodney James Oleary Aka JCEE / Rock City Funk [ Rest in Peace ]

It was very Sad to hear the news of an old friend & RCF crew member “Rodney James Oleary  AKA JCEE” passing away recently . Although I hadn’t seen him in many years I held a great deal of respect for him. He was a talented artist, one of Sydney’s most active and skilled writers during the 80’s as well as being one of Australia’s first true train Kings.

Below is a small sample of his work (taken from the internet) as well as a few of the dedication walls that have been painted in his memory.

“Sadly one of Sydney and Australia’s first generation pioneer writers passed away unexpectedly 31st of July, 2011.
JCEE was a king, an innovator, a mentor, an inspiration and friend to many, leading by example and burning for many years in the Sydney scene, from very early on as a member of TDF and RCF. Our thoughts and condolences go out to JCEE’s family, friends, loved ones and crew at this tough time. This massive memorial piece was done by Poser, Kode, Jasy, Take and Skore.I love Graffiti
