We are excited to present our first RUNs with New York City graffiti legend Cope2 as we kick things off with Loyalty and Pure Royalty.
"Both of these pieces were created in 2011 for my Art Basel Miami show "Rise To The Occasion." The original paintings were created with acrylics and enamel paints along with krink and paint markers. Each piece is official, authentic, original and has 30 years of history in it." - Cope2
Read on below to read our exclusive 1xRUN Thru Interview with New York graffiti legend Cope2.
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Cope2 and 1xRUN.
Born 1968 as Fernando Carlo, Jr. in New York City. Cope 2’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States and internationally. He is a self taught artist who is a celebrated legend contributing over 30 years to the graffiti street art culture. One of New York City’s most prolific graffiti artists, he began tagging his name in the South Bronx in 1978. He developed his style in the subways and streets of the Bronx creating graffiti productions throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s achieving international recognition for his distinctive style.
In recent years Cope2 has been commissioned by Time Magazine, Converse, Adidas among others. His work has even crossed into the virtual realm with appearances in video games such as Mark Eckos: Getting up and Rockstar Games: Grand Theft Auto IV.
Today, you can catch Cope 2 in the studio painting, bringing his raw energy into abstract expressionist style masterpieces, intertwined with his trademark bubble letters and tags on canvases. Cope2 crosses between art world, mainstream and street culture alike.
