BLADE a déjà raconté son histoire de vie à travers des graffitis. Maintenant, avec ses quarante ans de carrière au compteur et armé d'une mémoire incroyable, BLADE s'entretient avec Chris Pape pour réfléchir sur l'effervescence du Bronx dans les années 70, et raconte les hauts et les bas de sa carrière sans retenu. BLADE est considéré comme «le roi du graffiti» car, en 1980, après avoir peint sauvagement 5000 trains, il a cessé de compter. Ce livre fait le parallèle entre le graffiti New-Yorkais depuis ses débuts, en passant par ses années de gloire au milieu des années 70. Cet artiste incontournable a aidé les graffeurs New-Yorkais à se faire connaitre à l'international et cela fait de lui l'artiste le plus populaire auprès de ses pairs.

BLADE has already told his life story through graffiti. Now, more than forty years into his career and armed with an incredible memory, BLADE sits down with Chris Pape to reflect on growing up in the Bronx in the turbulent 1970s, and recounts the highs and lows of his storied career, holding nothing back. BLADE is considered “The King of Graffiti” because, by 1980, after painting 5,000 wildly creative trains, he stopped counting. This book parallels the New York graffiti movement almost from its inception, moving through its glory years in the mid-1970s, when BLADE earned his title, and ending in the global art scene, where he remains a major presence. BLADE helped New York graffiti become internationally famous by making it look fun, and, for reasons of quantity, quality, and, perhaps above all, for sheer spirit, BLADE may very well be the most popular graffiti artist with his peers.
