They call me Rawer from Spain , active since the last 12 years as handstyler, now focusing on calligraffiti, still working tags, characters and other disciplines of writting/drawing.I take inspiration of a big variety of stuff, but mainly music like hip hop, hardcore or punk rock. I was raised as a punk kid and began into hardcore and metal music at young age so I starting doing letters for metal logos or designs/characters for people into bands, zines or other underground stuff, some years latter I was initiated into hip hop culture so I started passionately into handstyles and graff being part of my lifestyle till nowdays. I'm just working in develop my styles to a new level.

Graffiti caught my interest in 1980. On every car ride, my eyes would dart side to side reading graff. In Brooklyn New York graff was everywhere..especially after Style Wars !! Earliest influence ENCE @marcussuarez. Check him out for an amazing life story 💪 After a long break from graffiti..family ,job, ect... I'm glad to see the culture is still thriving. In the last few years I've met many interesting people.. and some legends. I was truly surprised by the amount of old school writers still wanting to escape and create some art. I've secured 300ft of legal wall for anyone wanting to stretch there arms ! Welcome back

Okay so here it goes. My name is Frankie Botz, that’s been my name for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn and As soon as I watched Beatstreet and Stylewars I knew I wanted to be a graffiti writer. I started writing Graff in the early 90’s probably like everyone else sitting in a Jr High classroom bored out of my mind ignoring the teacher. I first started writing “Guimik” but that didn’t last very long. The guys I seen up around my Neighborhood were Mutz, Acid Rush, Boo, Neta, Craz-Rip, Trap just to name a few. I started cutting out of school so I could ride the B and the N trains and take photos of all the Graff I seen. Then I racked my first Black Book and a Fat Pilot from a local store called Zeskands and I was hooked. I started getting up around my Neighborhood but back then I wrote BATZ but I still pronounced it BOTZ ( the actually spelling of it is “PAZZO”, it’s an Italian word that means crazy!) so I got up with tags and a simple hallow throwie throughout my JrHigh to High school years. I really liked sketching in black books that was something I did but never shared it with anyone. Then it all stopped and I had to focus on getting money. So about 20 yrs go by and probably about 20 differentjobs lol, and I met a queens writer named AMUZE , he noticed me doing a throwie one day at work and said you write????? and then he told me who he was. So then I got a black book and blew the dust off my markers(I bought new markers). Amuze became a good friend and kinda took me under his wing, he introduced me to The FTR crew and eventually asked Slash (the founder of FTR ) if they could put me down. So here I am the oldest Rookie in the game and I’m loving it!!!!!!! BOTZ FTR

I "Ruse BAD" began painting in Santa Cruz, California in 2002, after being introduced to the art form by another graffiti artist from the area. (The only prior exposure i had in my life to graffiti was in 10th grade in Durango, Colorado where a schoolmate had taught me how to tag “Killa Bees”. (Wu-Tang reference)) After being introduced to graffiti in '02, i was instantly hooked. I painted solo for 3 years in and around the San Francisco Bay Area, until i moved to Los Angeles. There, I was very active, and was particularly fond of street and freeway bombing. In the Winter of 2015, i relocated to the Bronx, NY, where I came in contact with originators of graffiti and style. Upon meeting SONIC in the summer of 2016, my style started to move away from focusing on lettering, and began to evolve into more of a contemporary / pop art feel; My "Bad Girl" subway maps are some of my most sought after works.Although I am a relatively fresh face in the graffiti/street art world, I continue to make my mark with my ever evolving style.
