International graffiti artists "Sonic Bad"
on a 2014 NYC MTA Alert Poster.
Title: trash is a problem ...or not.
This alert poster is from a New York City MTA subway car . It's in great condition. This drawing is based on one of Sonic's early experiences on a subway train. (If you have taken the train at night in the 80s, most likely you would have experienced a mugging.) Featuring : inside the train is a gang member with a switch blade, a B-boy with a gun , and spectators watching in shock. On the outside of the train is a Sonic (throw up) piece.
This is a great piece of history straight from the artists experiences on the New York City subway system in the 80s .
Size: 21" x 22" or 43cm x 46cm

Jesse Rodriguez AKA “Sonic”
Born and raised in New York City.
In the 1970's, during the time of Hip-Hop’s beginnings, when graffiti was relegated to tags and bubble letters, Sonic brought unique artistic elements to graffiti. Pioneering graffiti styles still used today. Sonic is regarded for his creation of the ribbon, folding letters and his aptitude for transforming letters into characters and figures. In the early 1980’s he painted the infamous “Revolution” and “World War III” top to bottom on NYC subway cars. His graffiti has been photographed by Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant and showcased in many art books, magazines, movies, video games, fashion, galleries, and walls throughout the last three decades.
Sonic has made an indelible mark on the Hip Hop Culture.
He travel internationally bringing his graffiti culture, full of bold colors and original hip hop style, to countries such as Germany, Amsterdam, Indonesia , Spain, Italy, Singapore, Hong Kong, Belgium and throughout France, while still exhibiting in New York.
