Also known as Turk One and LP 136, Trike One began writing graffiti in the 70s with the GND (Graffiti Never Dies) crew. Notorious and feared for his size and fighting skills, Trike One and his crew controlled Sheepshead Bay and were responsible for bombing the Coney Island trainyard, the biggest yard in Brooklyn. Returning to New York after college in the 80s, Trike joined RTW (Rolling Thunder Writers), alongside some of the best artists of the era, like Zephyr, Quik and Revolt. Trike One is still painting today, showing his artwork worldwide.
