Theo: A short introduction: KATSU, a long time collaborator with FAT and GRL has joined FAT as an Artist in Residence. KATSU has had long had a unique approach to graffiti and hacking urban environments. This post is a short introduction to some of his existing work. Expect to see a bunch of new hybrid work during this A.I.R that extends in all directions.
How many have left a mark that can be seen from space?

I’m a graffiti writer/vandal/slimer working in New York City. I’ve been involved in graffiti for over 15 years. I love graffiti and feel that it’s time to really change shit up. Traditional graffiti methods are powerful but the combination of graff and tech can be absolutely LETHAL.
My goals as KATSU are to motivate vandals and accumulate FT’s.
I have turned graffiti into a game for myself where the objective is to gain “FT’s” or “FameTokens tm.” in the most effective ways possible. Any and all FT’s are good for business so placing my name in people’s lives, and in unique ways is the main objective.
Because I’m new to F.A.T. I figured I should show off some of the things I’ve made. I’m very excited to meet the crew and get grinding on some sick ideas.
Powers video – homage to eames powers of 10 film. shortlisted for guggenheim show
Mochaccino – “world’s largest graffiti exhibition”? sounds perfect to me.
Picasso – barely made it out of this one.
Obama’s crib – had my friend waiting on a suzuki gsxr to get me the fuck out of there
Fire Safety – kids need new toys
Fire Hazard – my new toy
