September Featured Artist
They call me DFour, a member of City Of Lost Artists Crew (C.O.L.A - founded in 98). I started doing graffiti in 2008 and grew up in the south east of LA county.
Inspirations are Augor, Saber, Tank, Plek, Phixer, Skill, Thanx, Versuz and many other Los Angeles artists. I wanted to develop my style to do more technical pieces and do something that I thought was dope. Didn't really care if people could read it or not, but I did end up figuring out how to manipulate my letters in a way where they were still visible, just a little tweaked out. Being a graffiti artist, it's mandatoryto also be able to successfully execute straight letter bombs in order to be seen from a long distance, such as on the freeway, throw-ups for hot-spots, roller bombs, etc. Graffiti will always be more than a hobby, it's a lifestyle. It's been there for me when nobody or nothing else has, through the good and the bad.
I'll die doing this. IG: @deforloko

Greetings. I go by the name “DEC” and reside in El Paso, TX. I have been painting since the early 90’s. Although my technique now leans toward the direction of “abstract art”, my graffiti roots will always have a major impact on my work.
Some of my greatest influences include Revok, Sam Friedman, Mad C and Kenor.

June Featured Artist
I'm Rame from the KMD crew, writing in N. Philly since 95’. Some of my influences are KADISM, RAKAM (free him), BOZA, ENAME , KAIR , SERIOUS, KREV, CAEM, SAT ONE, SEW and PRE. My forte is that "wrist workflow”... can slap paint on a wall faster than throwing a frisbee. Growing up in a city full of cutthroats, hustlers, and killers we all kept our real friendships tight with the homies we did roll with . We are a family. My favorite memory was walking the routes of the neighborhood with my boys, I'm talking walking for hours from 10 pm till the sun came up catching tags. My love of graff and its art still stands strong. Check out my graffiti radio show called GRAFF LIFE RADIO 215 We AIR live every SUNDAY 8pm-10pm in Philly on Www.smokedoutsounds.com If it wasn't for graffiti and music, well HIP HOP PERIOD, I wouldn't even be HERE. Peace & stay vigilant!

Hi, I'm Zerks. I'm from NYC representing a number of crews MSD, WF, ELC to name a few. A native New Yorker coming straight out of Ridgewood, Queens. I started writing Graffiti in 2007. Although started on the streets, my main focus now is legit walls. I am an advocate for graffiti as art. There is so much talent in it that deserves way more credit than given. I was very fortuned to be part of staff at 5 Pointz. A life changing experience. Currently enjoy collecting vintage markers and graffiti artbooks and magazines. I also frequently hit graffiti events/shows to show support, so if you in NYC area you may run into me.

Hi, I’m just from the World Famous Crew. Grew up in the Bronx. Started hitting the streets at the age of 14 (1984). I enjoyed watching trains on a 2 and the 5 line 4 line. One of my best influences was MIT 77 from LA crew and Lee Quinones. There are a lot of other artists too that I still have mad respect for. Credit: Bowery Boogie interview (2015) “The world of graff is like [how an] athletic person gets his fame... this is our fame from one of the realest forms of hip hop... we go out and get ours. That’s how we get recognized, if not you just a toy… feels great when someone come up to me and say…”you Just??? Wow. . . Can you sign my black book please?” That’s our fame.”
March Featured Artist
Hi, I am Soma79. My favorite documentary is Style Wars. I would watch Style Wars and Scribble Jam as a teen over and over again exhilarating my love for graff and hip-hop. I originally dabbled in Graff some but my focus and notoriety was from being an MC and scratch DJ. I performed under the name Somatic/Soma79. Recently, I have started focusing on art again but now have taken my love for art to the galleries. I am mostly inspired by the people around me, particular by an artist named Brandalizm. My art incorporates a street/comic/fine art portrait vibe.
“As those who really know me know there is no real me.“
February Featured Artist
Greetings! I go by Morals. A Miami Florida native, now living in San Francisco. Graffiti has been a part of my life since 87'. I started noticing handstyles by some of Miami’s greatest writers riding the bus as a kid. In 91' I saw an incredible mural done by the 7up crew. It changed my life. I remember going to school that day and practicing my name. At that time, I was writing Sane. A couple of years later that I started bombing and practicing pieces. 30 years later, graffiti is still a major part of my life. I have met some great writers that i look up to and have some collaborations with them. I am now in the crew that i once looked up to. And, i never lost the love to reshape letters.

Rasterstache is a contemporary pop artist creating large paintings and sculptures, with an influence in the realm of robots. Rasterstache's work can be found in a myriad of public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad, and has been seen in numerous galleries in North America. Currently living in San Francisco and working in both San Francisco and Los Angeles.
"I started writing, and later airbrushing on clothes and skateboard decks. Space was very limited where I grew up and so I eventually moved over to sculptures and art toys. This was an easy transition for me because I could actually make money from artwork to pay for more paint and supplies. Later I crossed over to bigger pieces which were noticed by galleries. The rest is the future."
