On Thursday 9th June Chrome & Black have none other than PART ONE, NYC Style Master and legendary Graffiti Artist, in store for a special signing of his book 'Part One: The Death Squad.' Pre order your copy here and join them from 6pm to get your copy signed!
PART ONE (Enrique Torres) has the reputation of being one of the early graffiti style writing pioneers that created some of the most brilliant art works on New York City’s subway trains. He is a veteran of the golden years of New York City subway painting and considered a style master in the graffiti world specializing in his own brand of lettering which he started to develop in 1974. From 1974 – 1985 he was one of the most accomplished artists on the New York City subway trains, in 1985 he took a brief hiatus from painting only to return in 1990 as a leading figure in the re-emergence of wild style pieces in murals in Harlem. His art has been featured in the classic film Style Wars as well as the critically acclaimed book, Martha Cooper’s Hip Hop Files, and most recently the books, Burning New York, New York City Black Book Masters and Graffiti Planet. His biography, Part One - The Death Squad chronicles his art spanning more than 30 years. PART is active today painting both on canvas and on walls around the world. He was most recently a featured artist at Born in The Streets at the Fondation Cartier in Paris.

As we bring you our new site and collecting FRESH content here is a little something from last weekend, at the Birmingham event SNEAKS & PEAKS!
After exploring a load of options we decided to bring KEYSEVNTEEN back on a new platform. Our wordpress subscription ran out and due to the amount of content we had on there the new yearly fee was way too much to fork out for a none profit website. On this new platform we will never run out of space BUT we have lost all of our old content, Never the less we are going to carry on with a fresh start and hopefully more regular updates.
Were also looking for new contributors. wether you want to be a regular contributor as part of the team with your own login or just want to send a couple of bits over now and then get at us via private message on the keysevnteen Facebook.
