A lot can be said about Mare 139. We could talk about his metal sculptures, ‘Street Play‘ by Martha Cooper and of course his part of the New York graffiti kingdom, but we choose to hold on to the memory of ‘Style Wars‘, where he had to repeat his name at the writer’s bench, spelling it. He seemed a little uncomfortable with the situation, not realizing at that time his name would be forever engraved in our lives.
Now we are lucky to have his limited edition based on this mythical image of the writer, captured by Martha Cooper.
In the pedigree of our culture, Part One and TDS have their own branch. Their pieces covered continuously the lines 1, 2 and 5 during the last years of the late 70’s and early 80’s in New York. Part One, a champion of wildstyle, has shown and proved his mastery under several names: Roam, Rio, Fudge 357, 2worm, Wepa, Ultra2, Rique…
This time, one of his mythical pieces decorates one of our limited editions.
Very few legends are still here to tell their story and make it stay alive to prevent it from fading away. In graffiti this might be said about Sento (TFP, DAMAGE INC), a unique writer whos personal style of letters has inspired writers all over the globe. The king of swing couldnt have been left out of our collection of limited editions. It wouldnt have been complete.
