"Having a print made from an original New York City subway map piece that I created and collaborated with 1xRun on is a really great idea in the sense that many art collectors are able to own a piece of my New York City history.
The whole concept of doing a New York City subway map goes perfect with my history as being a New York City graffiti art legend cause the subway system is were I made my bones and a name for my self tagging up and getting my name on every subway line and subway system in the whole city." - Cope2
