Lot description
This substantial work by Kool Koors was executed in spray paint on unstretched canvas circa 1982. Capturing the artist’s brilliant use of dynamic scrawl, vividly contrasting color, and abstracted design, this work by Kool Koor is a fantastic example of his unique early style.

Beginning his career in 1979 writing graffiti on the subway trains and throughout the urban landscape of New York City, Kool Koor grew up surrounded by such artists as A-One and Toxic, who lived in the same neighborhood in the South Bronx. He’s known for his space-age inspired works which range from surreal scenes to intricate works of abstraction. Attending the Art and Design School in Midtown meant Kool Koor had plenty of access to the subway on his commute to and from school, allowing him to gain notoriety through collaborative and individual works on the trains. Known for bringing the South Bronx style to downtown Manhattan at such venues as Fashion Moda, artists such as Kool Koor, Rammellzee, A-One, and others were some of the first to completely diverged from classical graffiti art, pushing the boundaries of their work to transform urban scrawl into something completely innovative in the artistic scene.
