TATS Cru – Studio Visit & Group Show

Taking the subway uptown to the boogie-down Bronx, we hit up the TATS Cru boys to check out their studio. It’s in the middle of a community centre; pretty fittingly for one of the longest-standing crews in graffiti, who also give a lot back to the neighbourhood they grew up in. The rougher edges have worn down a little, but a few blocks the wrong way and you could still be in trouble. New York City’s quick to remind you when you’ve put a foot down wrong… We caught up with BIO, Nicer and BG183 for a history lesson and an insight into their New York ahead of their latest group show – Blood, Sweat and Tears – at Toy Tokyo Underground in New York.

A little review of NYC

So last month I was lucky enough to spend a week in NYC and obviously while there went around some spots to check on the street art/graff (when I wasn’t dodging some proper hard rain showers!). The first thing that struck me was the sheer volume of great work on USPS stickers, especially by FAUST and SURE/SURER (RIP) as well the usual graff trucks. Anyway that’s enough talking, the pics can do the rest – enjoy!
