Graffiti legend, John "Crash" Matos, is now regarded as a pioneer of the international Graffiti art movement. John Matos went by the name of "Crash" during his Graffiti days in New York, and was one of the most successful of the group of artists who exhibited in the premier Graffiti theme show at Sidney Janis Gallery during the late 80s. His method of painting is more complex than was his peers and incorporated carefully-chosen pop imagery. The artist was spray-painting New York City subway cars by age 13, and soon moved from simple 'tagging', to full-image artworks transferred onto canvas. His early murals on dilapidated buildings and subway trains inspired a generation of painters.
