Biography

Born and raised in New York City, with graffiti roots in the early 70's, Revolt is an original member of the historic New York City subway graffiti crew: The Rolling Thunder Writers (RTW).

Known for his ultra-colorful tags and elaborate pieces on the Broadway #1 line, with heavily influenced psychedelic and comic art stylings, and later, taking it "all-city". With contributions to the seminal classic hip-hop films, "Wild Style and "Style Wars", his participation in the 80's East Village art gallery scene, various music videos, album covers, animation, comics, vinyl toy design, and creating the classic "YO! MTV Raps' logo. His early 80's tour of duty in the city of Baltimore is legendary, where he, like a "Messenger of Style", singlehandedly kick-started a graffiti scene there that still feels his influence today.

His place in the history of "graff-dom" is set.
