Graffiti photo flashback: The reign of the TKO crew's KOZE

There have been a lot of changes in Denver's street-art scene over the past five years, as evidenced by the photos collected in our slide show "Tagging Up Denver."

Originally published in tandem with Jared Jacang Maher's 2009 feature "The Writing's on the Wall," about the arrest and conviction of Timothy Barajas, aka KOZE, the leader of Denver's TKO crew, the photos are a vivid reminder of the way things used to be. Check out the images below, complete with original 2009 cutlines. To read Maher's feature, click here.
