"This is the first illustration in which I used the third eye on the forehead. In this context I used it as a symbol for reason and reflection. The beard is firm in its stance and is stretching outwards seeking knowledge. The arrows on either side of the head are cryptic IT's (Illegal Trouble). This piece served as a study for an illegal piece I painted a mile under ground with Imp that we titled "Tunnel Vision".
I started writing GATS around 2005. It stood for Graffiti Against The System. Originally it was a political campaign in reaction to Police Chief Bratton's zero tolerance policies. I just never stopped writing it and took it to a global level. I wrote it so much that that's just what people started calling me. In 2007 I started doing the character because I wanted a symbol that could cross cultures and not be held back by language barriers." - GATS
