Blades title of King of Graffiti stems from his proud and prolific achievement of painting over 5000 trains in NYC. He started graffiti painting in the 1970s at the age of 15. As the graffiti movement was in its fledgling days, no influences proceeded him. Therefore he is credited with the development of many notable aerosol styles. Using letters, perspective, characters, colours and abstract geometric forms, he developed an artistic style that was personal and focused on an individual narrative.
