Legend of New York graffiti, founding member of The Crazy Five Crew (with Comet, Death, Vamm …), Blade is considered the king of Graffiti after having completely invaded the subway in the 70s. Blade is known as the specialist in Blockbusters, a technique that completely covers metro cars. He reigned supreme on lines 2 and 5 between 1975 and 1980 and he was credited with nearly 5,000 wagons covered with his works (!). This book traces the life of this child from the Bronx, who became a major graffiti artist. It is also in parallel the story of a movement born spontaneously in the street and which is considered as one of the most avant-garde artistic movements of the end of the 20th century. Blade signs this book with a magnificent color drawing.
