NYC graffiti art, heavy metal, comic books, and fantasy art intersect here in Louie KR.ONE Gasparros visual autobiography. This legendary Queens artist-drummer weaves these powerful influences into a medium he calls "Graffantasy", creating tags, wall pieces, paintings and illustrations, model trains, jackets, and more. Gaze at this modern Renaissance mans work from 1977 to the present, and trace his evolution from his adolescent days watching bombed subway cars whirring by in a KOLORSTORM, to the underground period tagging trains and evading cops, to his legal works and whole-school buses. Starting with a scrapbook-like photograph collection from Louies youth and his other career as drummer of several heavy metal bands, the book moves on with elaborate sketches from the artists blackbooks, and colourful concert posters and album covers. Through a stunning array of styles and techniques, witness KR.ONEs transformation from restless punk to major decorative artist and abstract painter.
