Met this guy in Louisville, Kentucky, when I was painting Spinnelli's All City Jam this summer. Absolutely smashing the globe right now, from USA to China.
If we're gonna talk about a train writer who puts in his work then Awal needs to be in the centre of that conversation. There's nothing more satisfying than benching one of Awal's many wholecars and witnessing the sheer scale of his destruction. This guy gets up on a whole other level.

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.
