Graffiti piece by Mone

How old are you?

I’m currently in my late 30’s.

Where are you based?

I grew up on the border of Mt. Vernon and the Bronx. I moved out of NY State some years ago.

When did you begin painting graffiti?

I started toying up my neighbourhood with tags and throw ups in 1988.

How did you get into graffiti and what made you start painting?

My earliest recollections of graffiti go back to about 1984. The subway trains were bombed back then and for some reason I found it fascinating to look at, the walls in my neighbourhood were destroyed as well. It wasn’t until 1988 that I was old enough to really go around, and try my hand at it.
