SONIC BAD was born in the summer of 1961, raised in New York City. In the early 1970’s, during the time of Hip-Hop’s beginnings, when graffiti was relegated to tags and bubble letters, Sonic brought unique artistic elements to graffiti. Pioneering graffiti styles that are still used today. Sonic is regarded for his bold colors and creating many different graffiti lettering styles, such as: folding/ribbing letters, and his aptitude for transforming letters into characters and figures. In the early 1980’s he painted the infamous “Revolution” and “World War III” top to bottom on NYC subway cars. Sonic painted trains with graffiti artists such as Rammellzee, Dondi, IZ the Wiz and Ink76, just to name a few. His graffiti has been photographed by Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant .

Born and raised in the Midwest. Chronic doodler. I've been drawing and sketching since I was able to hold a pencil. I've always had a fondness and admiration for graffiti. I have an associate's degree in graphic design but haven't pursued art as a career as I had originally intended. My artistic style and approach have shifted and changed over the years. I certainly, hope to strengthen my letter game to the caliber of my original character illustrations that have leveled up over the course of the last year. I currently rep ECSK, OTN, RGB, and BKI. My favorite writers as of right now are Geser, Vogey, Kever, Icky, Bugs, Amuse, Aerub, Stuck, Sege, Kaisy, and Kesti (and that is just to name a few)

I grew up in Baltimore Maryland, was born in 72”. Came up into my own in mid 80s early90s n tha’s about the time hip hop n art caught my attention. We were seeing early tags in Baltimore. Ouch was doing his thing then Shaken, then by early 90s a lot of us inner-city kids were tagging, was even spreading to suburbs at that point. So we all tried our hands. Right after that, I found the rave scene n branched out that way meeting a lot of writers. I got wrapped up in drugs n alcohol and that fkd’ me a while. I ran some restaurants and then I got into tattooing and took that serious for a good while. I had a sadness in me until I started painting again now in my late 40’s. If you ever feel the call to create PLEASE ANSWER IT!Huge props n Shout Out!: ADAM, STAB, KAR, KUZIN, MEEK, GASE, MODE, SHAKEN, ZEK, LURK,RIDE, HUSKE, RANDOM, ISSUE AND PRAISE

My crew history/lineage is NM, RTS, PGK, OFA, AEK, K187, TNE, STP. In 2001 became a firefighter and started giving back to the community. Helped start a couple of nonprofits helping youth get off probation and help them in their art (MAAC and Turning the Hearts Center).
