Title: Blade: King of Graffiti
Authors: Blade, Chris Pape
Blade: King of Graffiti parallels the New York
graffiti movement almost from its inception, moving through its glory
years in the mid-1970s, when BLADE earned his title, and ending in the
global art scene, where he remains a major presence.
BLADE who, by 1980, after painting 5,000 wildly creative trains stopped
counting, helped New York graffiti become internationally famous by
making it look fun, and, for reasons of quantity, quality, and, perhaps
above all, for sheer spirit, BLADE may very well be the most popular
graffiti artist with his peers.
Chris Pape, aka Freedom, the author is the painter of the legendary
mural which gave a name to a tunnel:
the Freedom tunnel.
