BIOGRAPHY: Technically, this is an autobiography. I often hesitate to say, "I am Deadly Buda". One, because it sounds funny. The second, because I often feel as if it is a character that temporarily takes over my body so that it may be written about later...so... if you are still ... See more reading this let me tell you the story... In 1983 I was 13 and heard the call of graffiti and Hip-Hop music. My experience with graffiti led me to become an internationally recognized artist featured in books, magazines, videos, festivals, art shows and uh… jail. Using the name "Buda", I trail-blazed the “Monster Rock” letter style which has inspired much modern day graffiti. I painted with many old school graffiti masters such as Tracy 168, Phase 2, and Daze.Of course I went to high school during this time, but only to access the visual communications department in order to print T-shirts and stickers for my punk rock band Citizen Pain, which I was the singer of. I dropped out of New York University because I got wrapped up in being a NYC club promoter (or “Club Kid”), and did a party at the RedZone as well as flyer design for MK and the World. In 1990 I received an NEA grant to do a major installation “Dawn of the Psychopaths” at Franklin Furnace in New York City. I had a few one person art shows, and I created a line of nationally distributed trading stickers called “Unstoppable Stickers” – featuring pictures of graffiti art on one side, and bios of the artists on the other. A year later I became a rave promoter and DJ using the name Deadly Buda. I was known to be one of the hardest of the hardcore techno DJs. I played in many different cities in America and Europe. I opened “Turbo-Zen”, one of America’s first rave record shops and authored many articles published in several international publications, such as Alien Underground, Street Sounds and Under One Sky.
