Raised in the Bronx, Julius Cavero received his artistic training in the streets when he started in the 1970s, tagging the name “King 13” every time he’d win a challenge, performing daredevil tricks on swings in local parks. His start on trains had a take-no-prisoners attitude and he quickly gained a reputation as a style master for creating exciting and innovative whole cars. He became president of TNB (The Nasty Boyz) and ex-president of TVS (The Vamp Squad), one of the most notorious New York graffiti crews. T-KID is still active and his work can be seen in the Bronx as well as around the world. He is also a member of MAC crew from Paris. By the early 1980s his trains were the ones to watch out for and were photographed by photographer Henry Chalfant & included in the book, “Subway Art.
