    I was totally oblivious of Toronto graffiti scene. Then like a year ago my friend showed my some cool murals and drawings and I was totally overwhelmed. Have been addicted ever since then...

    I kept getting really bored in class and I was tired of just drawing my usual doodles so I started to graff in my sketchbook it was about a year after I started tagging with my friends. So i guess you could say I got started three weeks ago.

    i started when i was 7 yeers old i was tagin a dumpster for the first time and some latin kings told me to com with them and they blessed me in and made start writing for them i dont rep any gangs i hate gangs i carry a strap and walk alone i do graffiti for the art because i can leave a mark on this world and make people react to my shit i remember the first time i saw graffiti still i was on a train goin from minnesota to florida and i saw it in a tunnel i was awestruck i didnt know wat it was but i knew somebody to a risk to put that there and ever since then i tried finding out what that was and i how i could do it so i went down to the store racked my first can and went apeshit on everything mi first tag name was LITO ( my neighborhood nickname) and as time went on and the more i started to realize the world was full of criminals and saw my freinds die i decided that the only things that survive in an enviroment like that are MONSTERS so this stories starts out with a naive lil boy who jus wanted to write on shit and ended with a full fleged MONSTER that sought out to make his mark werever he can graff has a way of transforming people.

    when i was a little kid i used to walk up the hill my house was on and at the top was a forest with two big water towers, it was an epic chill wall back then and there were pieces on it everywhere, i didnt understand at the time but that was my first look at real painted pieces. the forest around the towers is all gone now and theres so many houses no ones painted on the water towers in years. i was into art my whole life since i was like 3 of 4 id always be drawing, but i never really gained a respect for writing until i was in highschool and my little brother got into it. i had no understanding of graffiti and i just thought tags and throw ups were all there was too it, but after a while i started to understand. now i cant stop. its been 6 years now and im addicted to seeing my name up, cant stop now i got work to do

    I started up by throwing wack tags around the city at the age of 14, that was 10 years ago. Not after long I went out with a group of friends, to do my first throw-up. Damn the adrenaline rush was huge back then as a kid. I've had inactive/passive phases during these years aswell but I've never really quit painting. Still repping and keeping it real, just done my last piece few hours ago on a legal wall, in contrast to all the fucking tags, a hollow piece and a throw-up I did on illegal spots last night :D
