Artist: CRASH (born John Matos) is an American graffiti artist born in the Bronx, where he currently lives and works. He is best known for his murals and silk screen prints inspired by the Pop Art movement. CRASH is considered a pioneer in graffiti art and began spray painting subway cars by age 13. He first gained critical attention after curating “Graffiti Art Success for America” at the Fashion Moda in 1980, a historic exhibition which elevated graffiti to the realm of high art. In 1984, the artist collaborated with Keith Haring on a series of murals commissioned by Figuration Libre and British American Tobacco. Today, his works are held in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, among others.
