Catalogue Note

Crash, also known as John Matos, was raised in the Bronx and began tagging trains in yards as a teenager.  He transitioned to canvas in the early 1980s, when his work was featured in several gallery exhibitions.  Specifically, he curated 'Graffiti Art Success for America' at Fashion MODA in 1980, which was one of the first graffiti exhibitions, and featured artists including Futura and Lady Pink.
