“While Vulcan’s street art has graced literally thousands of walls and trains in his native New York over the years, and his artwork appears in pretty much every book on the history of spray can and urban art, the term “graffiti” hardly does his oeuvre justice. Vulcan’s murals have shown in museums, his art can be found on platinum-selling album covers, and his abstract canvases hang in countless private and collections…

Vulcan is one of those unique individuals whose creativity both reflects and drives popular culture. He first performed at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theatre when he was five, sang in funk and heavy metal bands, worked for years as a DJ in underground clubs, and produced chart-topping electronic music. He has written for VIBE, chronicled the underground motorcycle stunt scene in New York, traveled the world painting live at hip-hop festivals, spoken at NYU and Yale on the history of urban art (before being hustled out the back door to dodge police), competed in international video game competitions, and is currently working on his second screenplay. Vulcan’s art can be found on the walls of Danger Labs and Google in Silicon Valley, and he was recently commissioned by Sun Microsystems to paint live at their Java One conference….” (Flavorpill, Issue #291)
