Who: Jeff Mancilla is a mysterious guy. Here’s what we know: he’s based in Chicago, he’s a contributor to the graffiti blog 12 Oz Prophet, and his instagram is an ode to the Windy City’s graffiti scene.

Why You Should Follow Him: Mancilla chronicles the all-too-transient graff world, and his instagram is a repository for street art that could very well be erased tomorrow. One step ahead of the city’s graffiti removal crews, this instagram serves as a museum of ephemeral urban art, particularly on the South Side.
