Teamed together through the art of graffiti, Mike Baca aka 2ESAE & Fernando Romero aka SKI joined forces with the intentions to learn and grow as artists.
Prior to the thought of ever making a living from creating art, "We were forcing people to view our work around the city, illegally..." They spent years painting the streets and dealing with the repercussions of the law until they decided to do something positive with their talents by forming a collective. They have since put together nearly 50 shows /events both here in the U.S and Internationally. The collective is based on the philosophy of creation through destruction! Transforming the street graffiti perception into positive urban-industrial art.
All members of the collective are based out of New York. They primarily began doing art on the streets and subway systems of the city before ever touching a canvas. Collectively, each member adds not only a long history of graffiti based experience but within their works you will also find different styles, tools and creative elements implemented into their creative process through life experience and personal perspective . These guy's are artists in the truest sense of the word as they combine the use of photography (in which they are the photographer), paint(s), silk-screen, graphic design, illustrations, rust oxidation & collage to their works making the end result an array of visual aesthetic and beauty.
