Meet the makers – TATS Crew

The Bronx-based graffiti group TATS Crew has been using New York City as a canvas since the 1980s. Nicer, one of the founding members, will be on the Eval panel Thursday night to weigh in on the week’s best ideas. So we caught up with all the TATS Crew guys to find out how these inventive makers went from illegally tagging subway cars to founding a graffiti company with big-name clients.

The Burning of Kingston

Earlier this month, Mass Appeal teamed up with Red Bull to host The Burning of Kingston, a competition between some of graffiti’s most masterful when it comes to the “burner.” The competition’s participants included “Team Terrible” (Doc TC-5, T-Kid, Dero, and Dmote) and “the Spice Boys” (Ces, Bio, Doves, and Ribs). Despite the falling rain, the artists showed up to show and prove. Delivering an array of styles, letterforms, caricatures, and more, the artists truly made the first inaugural event a time to remember. Hit the video player up top to join Mass Appeal’s Sacha Jenkins for a little history lesson and to watch the battle unfold. Did “Team Terrible “come out on top or did “Spice Boys” come with the fuego?
