About the Artists:
Born John Matos in 1961, CRASH was raised in the Bronx, New York. At the age of 13, he began following the older teens from his neighborhood to the train yards and began bombing. Taking the name “CRASH” after he accidentally crashed the computer in his school, his name began appearing on trains circulating all throughout New York City. By 1980, he began transitioning from train yards to galleries, he curated the ground-breaking "Graffiti Art Success for America" at Fashion MODA, launching the graffiti movement that has remained very active through today.
Tavar Zawacki (born 1981) is an American abstract artist based in Berlin, Germany. For twenty years (1996–2016) Tavar Zawacki created and signed all of his artworks with his street artist pseudonym, 'ABOVE'. At the age of 19, Tavar bought a one-way flight from California to Paris, France, bringing with him a backpack full of art supplies, all the money in his bank account, and a 'rise above your fears' approach to starting his art career. Starting in Paris in 2000, Tavar transitioned from painting traditional letter style graffiti of A-B-O-V-E, to his 'Above arrow' icon that represented his optimistic mentality to 'rise above fears, challenges, and anything holding you back from your goals. During a 20-year period the artworks of ABOVE could be seen in over 100 cities spanning 50 countries around the world. In January 2017, Tavar Zawacki decided to step out of his self-imposed shadow of anonymity, and start creating, and signing artworks with his real birth name - allowing more freedom of creative exploration, as well as liberation from the arrow icon he has associated himself with. Tavar Zawacki's painting styles with his large-scale mural works, as well as his indoor fine art are characterized by the use of hard-edge painting, color field, geometric abstraction, Op art, and Trompe-l'oeil painting styles. Tavar Zawacki has been showcasing his work in galleries and creative institutions around the world since 2005.
PRO176, born in Paris in 1976, launched his artist career at the age of 5 when he taught himself how to draw by copying the art of famous American comic illustrator Jack Kirby. By 1991 PRO176 started creating letters and styles as his priority, joining the ranks of the Grim Team in 1996 and the Ultra Boys the following year. PRO176 embraces the new form of graffiti with comic book aesthetics, futuristic abstract mathematics, alphabetical constructivism and Picasso inspired cubism. From walls to canvas, PRO176 embraces his mentors’ style while creating his own dynamic interpretation.
