A contemporary of Keith Haring and a modern-day master of this present day art form of graffiti, Crash (John Matos) shoots his metaphorical arrows into art galleries, subway cars, and dizzying flashes across concrete walls.

Even in its newly evolved forms, far from its beginnings on subway cars, the message of graffiti has been decorate this. Artist Statement: From colorful faux wall paper, to Marvel Comics, this was my youth.
New York in the 60's had a life all its own. And being a child of the 60's, colors made such an impression on me that I rely on these memories to bring me to my work today. Whether is was an escape from the toughness of my neighborhoods, or an explosive imagination, drawing and painting was a launch pad that would change my life.
I believe that if you pour your heart into your work it will show. Well, how about pouring your heart into your work, and letting your imagination take you beyond its limits? Isn't that what being a child was all about? And, I still believe that if you give in to your imagination, and pour your heart into your work, you can't lose! Please check all the photos.
